Bachmann Challenger Nabs EMILY’s List Endorsement

State Sen. Tarryl Clark (D) won the endorsement Tuesday of influential abortion rights group EMILY’s List, a major boost to her campaign to take on Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.).

“Tarryl is a proven vote getter in what is traditionally rough territory for Democrats,” EMILY’s List President Ellen Malcolm said in a release. “Her candidacy puts this district in play and gives Democrats the best shot at picking up this swing-seat in November.”

“Her strong reputation of getting things done for Minnesota families is what sets her apart from her opponents,” Malcolm added, in a dig at both Bachmann and fellow Democrat Maureen Reed.
