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.

CD6 Representative Nick Zerwas 30A was profiled by ABC Newspapers.
Elk River Republican State Rep. Nick Zerwas, District 30A, is a rookie in the Minnesota Legislature this session, but he is learning the ropes very quickly by introducing several bills.
The 32-year-old state legislator looks at his role as another challenge in life and he has had many.
Many may not know that Zerwas has been battling heart problems all of his life. He has had 10 open heart surgeries, the last one being in 2007. He was even on the heart transplant list at a younger age.
Zerwas is a champion of community service and does not regard his health issues as an impediment to success in politics. “I hit my doors last summer during the campaign when door knocking,” he proudly says. Traveling from his office in the State Office Building to the State Capitol, Zerwas admits that reaching the incline in the tunnel is also challenging.
Being in the minority party has not stopped Zerwas from cranking out legislation in three major areas:
From the Minnesota House Republicans.
Minnesota's economy continues to improve thanks to the fiscal restraint & pro-growth policies of the 2011-2012 Republican majorities. A $5 billion dollar 2012-2013 deficit has turned into a $2.8 billion dollar surplus. SOURCE
