Hotelier Graves Eyes 6th District Run
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Another Minnesota businessman is exploring a 6th District run as a Democrat against Rep. Michele Bachmann.
Jim Graves is chief executive of Graves World Hospitality, a company with holdings that include the Graves 601 Hotel in downtown Minneapolis and the Le St. Germain Hotel — formerly the Radisson Suites Hotel — in downtown St. Cloud.
Graves doesn’t live in the district now, but grew up in St. Cloud and started his first businesses there. He now lives in Minneapolis.
Donald McFarland, a spokesman, says Graves filed papers Thursday for an exploratory campaign.
