Hotel owner to be Michelle Bachmann's opponent in 6th District

| No Comments

A hotelier was endorsed by Democrats Saturday to be Rep. Michelle Bachmann's opponent for the 6th Congressional District in the fall, the Pioneer Press reported.
Jim Graves won 66 percent of delegate's ballots at Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party's convention in Blaine, according to the Pioneer Press.
Graves' luxurious hotels are now run by son his Ben, freeing him up to pursue a career in politics. Though he is the wealthiest Democrat in the endorsement race, Graves does not plan to self-fundraise, Kare11 reported.
The two other hopefuls for the candidacy, May Township business owner Brian McGoldrick and St. Cloud lawyer Anne Nolan, said they would not challenge Graves in the August primary, making him Bachmann's likely opponent, the Pioneer Press reported.
