This from a post at the Big Question about possible candidates to run for Jim Ramstad's seat:
State Sen. Geoff Michel, R-Edina, said he would strongly consider running. “There’s going to be a lot more intense conversation in the Michel household tonight than there was the night before,” he said. “An open congressional seat is something that comes up maybe once in a career,”
As the Enlightened Grasshopper commented on the last post, it would be very interesting to see how The Great Pretender's voting record and positions on things like abortion and gay marriage and a gas tax would mach up with the moderate Third District. There will be candidates out there with the money to do it.
As for Michel, he would, of course, see it as a career opportunity first.
