Just what we need in Washington, another community organizer. Ms. Clark coundn't defeat Bachmann, so she moves to another district hoping to give us 4 worthless Representatives; joining Michelle, Keith, and Betty. Along with our Senator Al, we definately are the laughingstock of America.

Rick Nolan is a lifelong native of the 8th District and I believe is the most experienced, energetic candidate. He has proven he can win tough elections, and will be our best candidate to defeat Chip Cravaack.

Egotistical carpetbagger who thinks Minnesota and America are desperate for the kind of representation only she can offer. Not sure sure she fully gets the whole "public servant" idea. Breathe easy, Tarryl, we're getting by without you.

Carpet bagger. Hopefully the 8th is smart enough not to vote for this career campaigner. Her and Dean Barkley should get together and write a book on how to make a living out of running for office. I thought a 13 pt drubbing against Michele would be enough for her to go away. Guess she thinks the folks in the 8th aren't all that smart.

The point of joining government is to represent the district in which you live. Not move around the state trying to find a bunch of people to elect you to their district. Political office was NOT supposed to be a career! This is a woman who obviously wants to make it a career, has extremist viewpoints, and, like Obama, doesn't actually work for a company so couldn't possibly understand how to create real, lasting, sustainable, private sector jobs. She'd just be a pawn to labor unions. She may have a passion for politics and want to change things, but moving around renting condos in hopes of getting elected is absolutely unethical.

Anyone who works for an environmental group might just as well forget about getting elected in Northern Mn.

How anyone could vote for an able bodied guy collecting a disability pension, with no family in the state of Minnesota is beyond me.

I hope the 8th District knows how much 651 & 612 have invested in Tarryl. MPR and Garrison Keilor have been stumping for her or against her opponents for years now. People in 218 have to pay attention to what the Twin Cities folks say. Hey Arrowhead Region, don't do what St. Cloud and the Suburbs did. Do as we say, Vote for Tarryl. But if you don't, I'm sure we can start the 'Congressman Klein is weak' drumbeat soon. Then we can run Tarryl in that district.

Tarryl was a wonderful Senator, but it was primarially because she was representing her home. She knew their needs, their challenges and their opportunities. In this race she has been too busy building her warchest to actually learn anything about the district. And Rick Nolan quit congress in the 1970s because it was too hard for him. He too is trying to reintroduce himself to this district after being retired for 32 years. Jeff Anderson is the only candidate with the roots and the potential to actually do anything this November.
