Republican Party of Minnesota Chair Keith Downey released the following statement on Jim Graves’ decision to lose to Congresswoman Bachmann again.
“Democrat Jim Graves said during the last campaign ‘If we’ve ever had a chance to defeat Bachmann, this is it.’ Congresswoman Bachmann prevailed in 2012 and she will again in 2014.
Michele Bachmann will prevail because she has been an effective voice willing to stand up to the Obama-Pelosi agenda of chronic wasteful spending in Washington, D.C. The last thing the hardworking taxpayers of the 6th District need is another politician who will not challenge President Obama’s $3.77 trillion budget proposal that will do nothing to erase the $800 billion deficit facing our children and grandchildren.
Michele Bachmann has the strength to challenge those in Washington to go through the Obama budget line by line and get our country back on the path to a healthy economy.”
