Bachmann Opponent Clark To Lead Green-Jobs Effort

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – The Democrat who lost in her bid to unseat Republican U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann will lead a nine-state grassroots campaign to create clean-energy jobs.

Tarryl Clark is a former state senator from St. Cloud who gave up her seat to challenge Bachmann in what became the most expensive U.S. House race in 2010.

Clark and former Michigan congressman Mark Schauer will spearhead the jobs initiative of the BlueGreen Alliance, a Minneapolis-based coalition of labor and environmental groups that aim to increase the number and quality of clean-energy jobs.

The organization says the “Jobs21!” initiative will look for ways to increase America’s competitiveness in creating jobs in fields including renewable energy, manufacturing, construction, transportation and high-speed Internet
