Statement from DFL Chairman Ken Martin about Rep. Mike Benson entering CD 1 Race
As a state representative, Mike Benson has pandered to the far right in St. Paul. Now he has set his sights on Washington D.C.
After Michele Bachmann announced her retirement, Benson said that her voice will be missed in Congress. Benson will try to fill her void as an extremist who cares more about partisan politics than getting things done for constituents. The hard-working folks in southern Minnesota deserve someone who represents their values, not another Michele Bachmann.
