Democrat Jim Graves Suspends Sixth District Campaign

jimgraves.com

ST. CLOUD – Democrat Jim Graves has suspended his campaign for the Sixth Congressional District.

Deputy Campaign Manager Aaron Wells has confirmed for WJON that Graves is stopping his campaign.

Jim Graves made the following statement in an email this (Friday) morning:
“After meeting with my closest family members, friends and supporters, we have decided to suspend Jim Graves for Congress indefinitely. This was never about Jim Graves; this was about challenging the ineffective leadership and extremist ideology of Michele Bachmann on behalf of those she represents. As of Wednesday, that goal was accomplished—and our supporters are and should be incredibly proud of that accomplishment. I will never be able to adequately express my gratitude for the tireless
work of our fantastic campaign team and our legions of friends and supporters.”

Graves, a hotel chain founder, narrowly lost to Bachmann in 2012. He announced last month that he would challenge the incumbent again next year.

Minnesota’s Sixth District is commonly known as the most heavily Republican district in the state. Several Republicans are weighing a run.

Earlier this week, Republican incumbent Michele Bachmann announced she would not be running for re-election.
