Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann has weighed in on next week’s special election in state Senate District 26 with an endorsement of GOP candidate Mike Parry.
Parry is running against Democrat Jason Engbrecht and Independence Party candidate Roy Srp. The winner of the Jan. 26 special election will finish the term of Sen. Dick Day, R-Owatonna, who resigned to become a lobbyist.
Here’s Parry’s news release:
Congresswoman Michele Bachmann today endorsed Republican candidate Mike Parry to replace retiring state Senator Dick Day, (R-Owatonna) for the special election to be held on Jan. 26, 2010.
“I’m proud to endorse Mike Parry for the special election in Senate District 26. Mike is a strong fiscal conservative who will be a powerful voice for lower taxes, limited government and economic opportunity in St. Paul. As a small business owner, Mike understands the need to set priorities and hold government accountable for results. The people of Waseca, Steele and Rice counties will be well served by this steadfast champion of conservative values who will stand up to the big spending, big taxing liberals in the legislature.”
Update: Gov. Pawlenty will hold a business round table with Parry on Wednesday night at 7:30pm in Owatonna Country Club in Owatonna.
