Dayton v. Kennedy

Returning Senator Mark Dayton to the Ranks of the Idle Rich in 2006

CD-6

The First Ring proves, once again, that it is simply first rate. You will not find more cogent analysis and commentary -- on such a wide range of issues -- like you will with 'Dead Ringer'. The next time you are tempted to purchase a subscription to Politics in Minnesota, save your money and bookmark this guy.

Yesterday Ringer put together a solid post on the goings-on in Republican circles to succeed Mark Kennedy in Congressional District #6. The players: Secretary of State Mary Kiffmeyer; former Education Commissioner Cheri Pierson Yecke and current State Senator Michele Bachmann. The GOP suffers from an embarrassment of riches in CD-6 and it is a shame only one of these women can run. Pierson Yecke is the sentimental favorite of DvK for the way the DFL-controlled Senate maligned this superb talent. But my head and heart is with Bachmann. DvK had the privilege of hearing Bachmann moderate a symposium featuring the foremost Christian apologist of our day, Ravi Zacharias, at the University of Minnesota 2 years ago. Bachmann combines charm, grace and substance unlike few women in public life. While I came to hear Zacharias make the case for faith, I also found myself mesmerized by Bachmann.

Enough fawning. Bookmark Ringu or die.
