DFL Rep. Jim Oberstar is the latest well-known Minnesota Democrat to raise money for state Sen. Tarryl Clark's campaign for congress. A fundraiser says Oberstar and the 2008 DFL endorsed candidate, El Tinklenberg, will host a fundraiser for Clark on November 12th in Woodbury.
This fundraiser comes one day after DFL Sen. Al Franken, MN House Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher and Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak will hold a fundraiser for Clark.
Clark is seeking the DFL endorsement against Dr. Maureen Reed.
Whoever wins the nomination will face GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann. Meanwhile, Bachmann is urging opponents of the health care bills to rally at the Capitol on Thursday.
