ST. PAUL, Minn. - One possible Republican candidate for Michele Bachmann's congressional seat is taking herself out of the running while another gets ready to announce his plans.

Bachmann's surprise decision not to seek reelection started a scramble among possible Republican successors in the right-leaning 6th Congressional District. But on Monday, state Sen. Michelle Benson of Ham Lake said she wouldn't run.

Yes, he will be fantastic.

Too bad the governorship was stolen from him Al Franken-style.

Should be real interesting to see who the donkeys trot out. Tarryl Clark?

Redistricting has made that district even more solidly red. So I’d say the seat is his unless he boots it away somehow.

So we should give Michele Bachmann a sacrifice flyout and a RBI?

Good for her.

For some unknown reason, I am not certain we have seen the last of Michelle Bachmann. She is too savy of a politician to back away so easily and quickly. Indeed there may be more personal reasons which we are unaware. Lets see what the future holds.

“For some unknown reason, I am not certain we have seen the last of Michelle Bachmann.”

I agree. She doesn’t seem like she is ready to pack up and go home. She strikes me more as someone who has rolled up her sleeves and is just getting started! :-)

I am afraid she is a victim of the left’s personal destruction campaign. Rumor has it the polling did not look favorable for her reelection.

It's a problem conservatives have got to deal with somehow.

Some newspaper hack was filling in for Soucheray today. Just rheming Bachmann up one side and down the other. Not enough she’s not running again. It won’t stop till her name is a dirty word in the world.

Never to me.

Went to the web site. I was wrong, it was Scott Korzenowski, hack lawyer.

Scott Korzenowski. He’s a Sunday morning know-it-all. I guess he writes a sports column for somebody but he is a lawyer by trade.

Tom would have been GREAT governor, but he’ll also make a terrific Congressman. Now, if Jason can unseat the Fraud, and Michele can win Amy’s Senate seat, all will be well in
MN.

Here’s the bad news.

My prediction is that Holder will go away, Amy Klobuchar will be given his job and Marx Dayton will appoint Keith (pbuh) Ellison to Amy’s seat in the Senate.

Keith can’t win outside of his district. He needs the base in his district to win.
