We in the 6th district really like Michele Bachmann and will elect her again. We also know that a vote for Graves is like a vote for Nancy Pelosi, and the Conservative 6th. will have no part of that.

All Bachmann can do is try to run down Graves. She has no record to run on, having missed 90+ votes in the house. Vote for Jim Graves, someone who cares for his voters. Send Michelle back to Iowa.

I find it difficult to believe that she is leading. ALL of her ads do nothing but "tear down" the opponent -- they NEVER talk about anything that she has accomplished. Probably because the only thing is the bridge and she did that working with the Democrats.

Holds lead? That's odd. The HUFFPO is writing that Bachmann is behind. I think the DEMs are getting their stories crossed. (Must be the panic setting in).

The man quoted in the article says it all: he likes Bachmann because she's made a name for herself. So, personal integrity has no bearing in what you want in a candidate? The 6th district is in a Fox news induced time warp, and fails to see that she has done NOTHING for her constituency in Washington. You have the highest foreclosure rates in MN, no jobs funding has come your way, and all you seniors who love her so much: she voted to cut medicare!! I just don't understand.

Michelle is smart, conservative, faith filled and loyal to her constituents.That is why she will win this race no matter how they try to demonize her as they do all conservative women!

For those of you who think Shelly should get re-elected, I have two simple questions-What has she accomplished and what has she done for the people of the 6th district?

Bachmann is nothing more than a huge cash cow for the GOP. It has nothing to do with her accomplishments (there aren't any). They will spend as much as they think necessary for her to win and maintain that money bag. I hope Graves wins but if he doesn't, it's far more important to look at maintaining control in the Senate and winning the House for Dems.
