The Fix: The 3rd and 6th in play

You knew that already but here’s what The Fix House rankings say.

Here’s the synopsis of Minnesota’s 3rd District race (DFLer Ashwin Madia, Republican Erik Paulsen and I-P candidate David Dillon):

29. Minnesota’s 3rd district (R): Democrat Ashwin Madia appears to have edged ahead of state Sen. Erik Paulsen (R) in this race in the suburbs of the Twin Cities. In a neutral year, Paulsen would likely win. But Madia’s grassroots campaign, his service in Iraq and the strong year shaping up for Democrats in the state make him a slight favorite.

Here’s the synopsis of Minnesota’s 6th District race (GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann and DFLer Elwyn Tinklenberg):

28. Minnesota’s 6th district (R): Note to vulnerable incumbents: Don’t go on national TV two weeks before an election. Just don’t do it.

  • Leanne

    What about Iraq Veteran Steve Sarvi in the 2nd?

    He is polling well in traditionally republican areas.

    Ha! Bachmann didn’t know she was vulnerable until after she screwed herself. Like Wexler on Colbert in 2006, she thought she could say anything and still be reelected easily.
