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.
