Dems Set Sights on Bachmann in 2010

With Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) kicking out the crazy on a nearly daily basis, Paul Demko of TWI’s sister site, The Minnesota Independent, reports that the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party is preparing to mount an all-out campaign to defeat Bachmann in 2010. However, it might not be so easy, given that Bachmann represents the conservative 6th Congressional District in the Minneapolis suburbs — and the DFL front-runner, Elwyn Tinklenberg, has been criticized for running a shoddy campaign as Bachmann’s challenger in 2008.

Tinklenberg has been testing the waters for a 2010 campaign both in Minnesota and Washington. He’s been courting the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and national labor unions whose financial support would be key if he decides to take another run at the post. Tinklenberg has also kept his name in the mix by doling out contributions to other Democrats and sponsoring the DFL’s Hubert H. Humphrey Day dinner.

He would have an advantage with the groundwork he has laid over the last four years, but not everyone is enthusiastic about the prospect of another shot for the former mayor of Blaine. There’s been considerable grumbling about the effectiveness of the campaign he ran two years ago. Most notably, political observers question why Tinklenberg ended the race with nearly $500,000 still sitting in the bank.

“They ran a piss-poor campaign,” says one veteran DFL insider, who didn’t want to be named criticizing a member of his own party. “They were trying to bio Elwyn two weeks out. You want to establish your identity before the media market gets so cluttered.”
