Tom Emmer Announces Run for Bachmann's Seat

Republican Tom Emmer made an announcement about his political future Wednesday in his hometown of Delano, Minn.

Emmer announced he will run for the 6th District Congressional seat now held by Republican Michele Bachmann.

His announcement comes one week after Bachmann announced she will not seek re-election.

The news from Bachmann spurred Democrat Jim Graves to suspend his campaign for the seat. He said his goal was to unseat Bachmann, and that was accomplished.
Emmer was the 2010 Republican candidate for governor who narrowly lost to now Governor Mark Dayton.
