If Tarryl Clark has a theme to her campaigns, it’s that she’s always fighting for people. It appears as though her would-be constituents will reject her fighting for them for a 4th time in the last 6 elections she’s been in.

Here’s the truth about Tarryl. She’s fought for special interests her entire adult life. Before she became a legislator, she was a lobbyist. After getting beaten like a drum by Michele Bachmann, Tarryl ‘fought for’ keeping union construction workers unemployed by leading the BlueGreen Alliance’s fight against the Keystone XL Pipeline.

That means Tarryl didn’t fight for lower gas prices at a time when gas prices were approaching $4 a gallon. She fought for President Obama’s bundlers that got hundreds of millions of dollars of loan guarantees right before their companies went bankrupt.

Nowhere in Minnesota do we need someone who’ll fight for President Obama’s bundlers. Nowhere in Minnesota do we need someone who’ll fight for subsidies for failing companies that add billions of dollars to the debt.

What’s disgusting is that Tarryl played the class warfare card when she literally cast the 34th vote needed to raise taxes on ‘the rich’. She didn’t hesitate on raising taxes just like she didn’t hesitate in lobbying to protect her green energy millionaires.

Take a long, hard look. That’s who Tarryl Clark really is. It’s beyond dispute that she’ll fight for people. It’s beyond dispute, too, that the people she’ll fight for aren’t the people who voted for her. She’ll fight for the special interests with the best of them.

St. Cloud didn’t need a legislator that fought for the special interests. The Sixth District didn’t need that type of leadership, either, which is why they rejected here. The Eighth District needs someone who listens to the people, then works on the things that are the people’s priorities.

Again and again, Chip Cravaack has proven to be that person.

    What about the roving candidate? St Cloud for 6th District, and now the 8th District? The american people are realizing that the hyped up promises of security and prosperity are not going to come from government, but by a productive freedom seeking, hard working people that have defied all realms of possibilities. FREEDOM is going to ring, and persuasive tyrannical government types are going to find themselves looking for other employment.

  • Jethro says:

    Well stated, Tom! Tarryl will fight for you alright…on mostly the wrong issues.

  • MplsSteve says:

    I haven’t seen much in the way of polling from that district – but I’d tend to think (and hope) that voters up there wouldn’t take too kindly to a carpet-bagger.

    OTOH, Tarryl Clark is just shrill enough and liberal enough that she might be the easiest candidate for Cravaack to beat in November.

  • Gary Gross says:

    Steve, Tarryl would be easy to defeat this November but Rick Nolan is a target-rich environment, too.

    Jeff Anderson has $18,000+ CoH so he couldn’t mount a defense, either.

    The reality is that the DFL candidates aren’t high quality candidates. I don’t know this for sure but I get the impression that Chip would love squaring off against Nolan the most.

    He’s a radical environmentalist in a district that doesn’t like people who are trying to shut down the mining industry.

    The bonus for us is Chip in the process of fighting for reelection will remind all the voters in the 8th district that the policies they oppose are Obama’s. If that gets Romney to a number close to if not breaking 50 in the 8th that might get the state to Romney. Something which Obama and his group weren’t counting on.
