GOP Favors Bachmann For Senate Bid
UNDATED -- Minnesota Republicans want Congresswoman Michele Bachmmann to take on U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar.
In a recent poll conducted by the organization Public Policy Polling 36% say they'd most like to see Bachmann as their Senate candidate, followed by Tim Pawlenty at 20% and Norm Coleman at 14%.
With moderate Republicans Pawlenty is actually the first choice, garnering 26% to 18% each for Bachmann and Coleman. But with conservatives, Bachmann blows Pawlenty out of the water 42% to 19%.
