Tarryl Clark officially kicks off campaign with district tour

State Sen. Tarryl Clark officially kicked off her campaign to unseat Congresswoman Michele Bachmann in the 6th Congressional District today, although Clark first has to secure the DFL endorsement against a well-funded and well-liked Dr. Maureen Reed.

Clark’s been unofficially running for months, raising $600,000 in the last  22 weeks of 2009, versus Reed’s $575,000 for the year. But today’s obligatory formal announcement at the Capitol starts a more intense round of campaigning.

Of course, Bachmann will have no trouble raising money with her high national profile in conservative circles.

Clark now will embark on a six-day tour of the district, with stops in Anoka, Buffalo, Elk River, Ham Lake, Oak Park Heights, St. Cloud, St. Joseph, Stillwater and Woodbury.
