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 news 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 Bachmann and physician Maureen Reed, Clark’s primary opponent.Clark is the Democratic establishment favorite in a primary against Reed. The financial support of EMILY’s List, which has active independent expenditure and ground-game operations, could help her mitigate what is likely to be an expensive primary and general election.
