Emmer to Make Announcement 04 Jun 13

Republican Tom Emmer is expected to make an announcement about

his political future on Wednesday in his hometown of Delano, Minn.

Reports say Emmer is likely to announce he will run for the 6th

District Congressional seat now held by Republican Michele Bachmann.

His expected announcement comes one week after Bachmann announced

she will not seek re-election.

The news from Bachmann spurred Democrat Jim Graves to suspend his

campaign for the seat. He said his goal was to unseat Bachmann, and

that was accomplished.

Emmer was the 2010 Republican candidate for Governor, who

narrowly lost to now Governor Mark Dayton.
