The 6th Congressional District contains 13 House districts and 8 Senate Districts and only a single one is in the DFL column. That single seat is held by Rep Dan Wolgamott (DFL-14B, St Cloud). This is why Congressman Tom Emmer (R-MN06) is able to chair the Republican election efforts across the nation. He is seen as having a safe Republican seat, but there is a big announcement coming about Emmer’s 2020 election set to occur later this year. Hint, hint.
The last election, Emmer faced Ian Todd (DFL-MN06) and trounced him 61.11% to 38.75%. Emmer outspent Todd significantly. Emmer raised $2,203,827 and spent $2,159,205 compared to $83,118 raised and spent $81,577. The nearly 3-to-1 expenditure produced an expected result and we hear Todd is coming again.
It seems clear something different needs to occur.
