Democrats back Graves in 6th District

From MPR’s Conrad Wilson…

Businessman Jim Graves won the DFL endorsement today in the Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District. The hotel company chief executive will run against GOP Rep. Michele. Bachmann in the November.

Graves told delegates in Blaine he’ll deliver a win on November 6th.

“I want you to know that I take your endorsement to heart,” he said.

Graves defeated employment consultant and activist Anne Nolan and real estate developer and small business owner Brian McGoldrick.

All the candidates say they’ll abide by the party’s endorsement.

Bachmann also won the Republican endorsement in the 6th District Saturday.

“I am honored and excited to have the Republican endorsement for Minnesota’s Sixth District,” she wrote in on her Twitter feed/ “Let’s turn MN red in 2012! Will you join me?”

Neither Graves nor Bachmann currently live in the 6th District but candidates don’t have to live in the district that they represent.
