Bachmann Opponent Withdraws From Race
The Minnesota Independent has the details:
Elwyn Tinklenberg is terminating his campaign for Congress. The former Blaine mayor, who lost to U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann [R-Minn.] by just three percentage points in 2008, made the surprise announcement in a press release issued this morning.
“This is obviously not an easy decision for me, but I have come to the conclusion that it’s the right one,” Tinklenberg said in a statement.While the image of the next campaign against Michele Bachmann is certainly energizing, the path to that campaign is becoming increasingly improbable.
The announcement comes barely a week after Tinklenberg officially entered the fray.
