Dem Challenger Graves Congratulates Bachmann

Jim Graves, the Twin Cities hotel magnate and Democratic challenger to Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) in Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District, released a statement Wednesday congratulating the three-term incumbent and one-time presidential candidate on her re-election.

I want to congratulate Rep. Bachmann on her victory last night. We wish her and her family the very best. I also want to thank all of the folks who worked so hard on our campaign over the last seven months. Their support has meant the world to me and my family and we are incredibly humbled by their dedication. We remain hopeful that our country can come together and address the pressing issues before us. Thanks again to all.
