Both the US Senate and Governor races are with in single digits. Governor Dayton and Senator Franken are vulnerable and very beatable. But it's going to take big wins in CD6 in order to make that happen.

Check out this article that appeared on MinnPost  "The Emmer Effect: GOP banks on big win in 6th to boost candidates statewide" By Devin Henry (9/5/14)

The key point to the story is what CD6 leaders have been saying all along, "That the road to statewide Republican victories run right through CD6." We are confident that statewide Republican candidates will win CD6, but they need to win by large enough margins to make up for DFL strongholds like Minneapolis, St. Paul, and Duluth.

Mid-50s is the goal
Emmer adviser David FitzSimmons said the campaign has two goals: win his race against DFL candidate Joe Perske with a tally in the mid-50 percent range, and drive up GOP turnout so candidates like McFadden and gubernatorial challenger Jeff Johnson can match that result.

FitzSimmons compared that with 2008, the last time Minnesota had a competitive Senate race. U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, then a freshman facing a three-way race for re-election, pulled in only 46 percent of the vote in the 6th. Then-Sen. Norm Coleman did only a little better there, FitzSimmons said, winning about 48 percent against two opponents. He fell just 312 votes short of Al Franken statewide. A stronger Republican performance in the 6th would have made the difference in that race.

“Your statewide candidates have to get above 50 percent even in a three-way race, and have to get about even 55 [percent] in the 6th district to really pull it through,” he said.

The fate of Minnesota's US Senate and Governor races fall on the shoulders of activists and campaigns with in CD6 to not only win "our" races, but to help increase Republican votes to help Statewide races.

To do that we need both resources and volunteers.

Via Emmer for Congress

Otsego, Minn - "Thank you for the great support that I have received from the Sixth Congressional District to be your Republican candidate in this year's General Election.

"Today marks another benchmark in the process and together, we are going to run hard and keep moving forward to another victory – this time in November!

"Jacquie and I announced my candidacy for Congress well over a year ago and we knew that we had to be committed to gaining significant support for every milestone in the election process. We knew we would have to work for every vote, one handshake at a time.

"Since I was endorsed by Republicans this April, I've enjoyed the time getting to know more people in a district that strongly believes in freedom and prosperity. As I look towards beginning the next phase of our campaign, there are no shortcuts to putting the time in with the residents of the Sixth District. I'm eager to continue to hear from citizens within the district on how we can improve the dialogue and outcomes in Washington, D.C.

"There are just over 80 days until the General Election and I know we will go into the election as a united party. I am truly humbled by the support of voters in the Sixth District and I am very thankful for all of the friends and volunteers that have helped Jacquie and I achieve this important victory in the election process." - See more at: http://emmerforcongress.com/latest-news.cfm#22

A big thanks to all who participated in the Caucuses, the endorsement, and campaign. Together we can win in November.

The CD6 Republicans, in partnership with BPOUs and the State Party have already opened 3 (updated) FOUR Victory Offices in the District. These offices will play a key role in helping elect Republicans to Statewide, Congressional, and State House seats, but we need your help.

We have eager and motivated staff working full time at these offices, with some great new tools to make calls and collect the critical Voter ID data needed to win. But the skilled staff can't do all the work. We need volunteers!

Tom Emmer won the endorsement of the CD6 Republicans today with 76% of the vote on Saturday April 12, 2014.


Congratulations to him, his family, and his campaign team for a well run and successful campaign.

Emmer for Congress

Chairman Yurczyk had the following to say,

"The CD6 Republicans congratulate Tom Emmer on earning our endorsment on Saturday.  Mr. Emmer received 76% of the vote on the first ballot.  We appreciate the time and effort he spent travelling the district to meet with delegates and gain their support.

We look forward to working alongside Mr. Emmer to help him spread his message of fiscal discipline to voters throughout the 6th District.  His straight-talk and unmatched work-ethic make him uniquely positioned to earn the support of voters in the Primary and on Election Day."

 

Congresswoman Bachmann announced her decision not to seek a 5th term in Congress this morning.

CD6 Republicans leadership released this statement:

"We thank Congresswoman Bachmann for her years of hard work for the people of the 6th congressional district and her unflinching commitment to conservative principles.   Her voice and tireless efforts will be missed in Congress, but we trust she will continue to be a strong advocate for conservative, Constitutional government. "

Donate to the CD6 Republicans to help ensure we have the resources to keep CD6 in Republican hands.

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann will start running a TV ad reminding Minnesotans how she is fighting to prevent Obamacare's disastrous effects from taking place.

By T.W. Budig at the Star News

Sixth District Congresswoman Michele Bachmann visited the State Capitol on Monday, March 18, to advocate for two north metro transportation projects.

Flanked by a semi-circle of Republican legislators and local leaders, Bachmann pushed for funding lane additions on Interstate 94 — a business-life artery, said one business leader — and dollars for improvements on heavily traveled Highway 10.

“One thing we all know is politics is a team sport,” said Bachmann, touting her own efforts by citing hundreds of meetings with district officials and speaking of shared resolve on transportation.

A parade of business leaders stepped to the podium to stress the importance of Highway 10 and I-94 to their businesses.
