Democrats Avoid Primary to Challenge Bachmann

Maureen Reed (D) announced that she is dropping out of the primary race to unseat Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports, allowing Democrats to unify behind one candidate, Tarryl Clark (D).

"The surprise announcement changes the dynamic of the Sixth District race, which was already shaping up to be one of the most heated in the state. Though Bachmann represents a solidly conservative area, national eyes and wallets are keenly focused on the race because of the lawmaker's controversial style of politics."
