State Senator Michelle Benson announces she will not run for Congress in 2014
(Ham Lake, MN) – Today State Senator Michelle Benson (R-Ham Lake) released the following statement regarding the open seat in Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District:
“I’m honored to serve in the Minnesota State Senate representing Anoka, Isanti, and Sherburne Counties. Serving in the U.S. House of Representatives representing Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District would also be a great honor as our country faces many challenges and opportunities.
Although my desire to serve our nation is strong, right now my family, particularly my young children, needs me in Minnesota and not in Washington, D.C. After thoughtful consideration for the needs of my family, I have decided that I will not be a candidate for Congress in 2014.
I want to thank the many people who have encouraged me to run for higher office. Their support reinforces my commitment to serve.
The 6th Congressional District is home to many committed and qualified Republican candidates and I have no doubt the District will continue to have Republican representation in Washington, D.C.”
