After Loss to Bachmann, Tarryl Clark Runs Again for Congress

Print More

Tarryl Clark lost to Michele Bachmann last year in the race for Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District. But she’s not throwing in the towel. Redistricting will allow Clark to challenge Republican Chip Cravaack next year in the state’s 8th Congressional District — the Iron Range. Cravaack unseated Democrat Jim Oberstar in 2010 after he served for over three decades in the House of Representatives.

The UpTake spoke to Tarryl Clark at Netroots Nation about her upcoming race against Cravaack, and her “day job” with the Blue Green Alliance.
