Tarryl Clark, the 6th District DFL candidate for Congress, is going to the State Fair today to counter State Fair-themed attack ads by incumbent Congresswoman Michele Bachmann.

Clark will be at the DFL booth on the corner of Dan Patch and Cosgrove at 2:30 p.m. 

The Bachmann television ad — which apparently used unauthorized State Fair logos that have since been replaced — implied Clark voted for price increass in corn dogs and bacon and beer at the fair. Clark, though, says those increases were the result of the Minnesota Legacy Act, which Minnesota voters approved to provide funding for the outdoors and the arts.
