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

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.
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.

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:
