Minnesota State Senator Mike Parry, who is running as a Republican in Minnesota’s first congressional district offers up what appears to be an “earmark” in Minnesota’s transportation bill to fix a road he is concerned about. After he is challenged about earmarks, he withdraws his proposal.

Senator Parry is wrestling Allen Quist for the Republican endorsement for Minnesota’s 1st Congressional District. The winner of that contest would face Congressman Tim Walz, who is a Democrat.
