Republican's Emmer jumps into Minn.'s 6th District race
DELANO, Minn. - Tom Emmer, the Republican who narrowly lost the last governor's race to Mark Dayton, kicked off his attempt at a political comeback Wednesday as he joined the 2014 race to succeed Michele Bachmann in Congress.
Emmer launched his campaign at a riverfront park in his hometown of Delano. He said in an interview beforehand that his close loss to Democrat Dayton in 2010 taught him to be a better candidate, and said he would seek to follow in Bachmann's footsteps.
