Second Republican Announces Bid for Bachmann Seat

Anoka County Commissioner Rhonda Sivarajah announced on Wednesday that she is running for Minnesota’s 6th District seat.

Sivarajah is the second GOP candidate in the primary to replace GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann, who announced last month that she would not seek re-election.

Former state Rep. Tom Emmer, a Republican who lost a 2010 gubernatorial bid, announced his candidacy last week.

Sivarajah, who unsuccessfully ran for the lieutenant governor nomination in 2010, and Emmer will fight for the state party’s endorsement in the 6th District next year. Republicans in the state predict the endorsement process — during which party delegates back a candidate via a series of unpredictable caucuses — has the potential to make or break this race for the party.
