The 2014 race for Minnesota's 2nd Congressional District -- targeted by national Democrats as one they believe they can win -- is about to become more crowded and more interesting.
Paula Overby, who is a 59-year-old quality assurance analyst from Eagan, says she has nearly enough signatures on a petition to get on next year's Democratic primary ballot to compete for the congressional seat.
Overby, born a man who now identifies as a woman, believes she will be the first openly transgendered person from Minnesota to run for Congress.

Wonder what it looks like in a bikini?
Which cockus will she join?
Paul(a), uh, after 8 years of Hillary, our first woman president, it is your turn to do 8 years as our first whatever you are. America loves “firsts” so you are wise running for office. You will be first in line for president.
Lock IT up.
IT is a whackjob.
We had a man turned woman run as a Republican in south Florida a couple years back.....actually owns a construction company down here.
This District is the one immediately south of Minneapolis/ St. Paul. It is currently held by John Kline (R), who has held the seat for over ten years. He won in 2012 54%-46%. He is deeply conservative (he passes all known Freeper smell tests) in a conservative district (MN-2 is where conservative Minnesotans went to escape the liberal hell-hole of Hennipen county).
The democrats have a better chance of taking Texas, if they're going to run an abomination in MN-2.
Didn’t Kline vote FOR the stimulus bailout and the NDAA ?
No, Kline (from Minnesota) voted against the 2009 Obama Stimulus. Perhaps you are thinking of Klein (from Florida) who voted for it.
I think Kline voted for the Bush stimulus in 2008, but very few republicans voted against the Bush bill. The Bush stimulus was mostly a tax rebate, if you recall, with some funding for small businesses.
What’d they do, carve a “cleavage” in IT’s chest?
I don’t know.
And I don’t want to know.
It looks like Libby Mitchell.
