It's not quite Nancy Pelosi, but Democrats in Washington have their sights set squarely on Rep. Michele Bachmann's district.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee announced this morning that they have added Bachmann's DFL challenger Tarryl Clark to a "Red to Blue" list of candidates that they are supporting this fall.
Clark was previously featured on a DCCC list of 26 races "to watch" in 2010.
Making the "Red to Blue" list means the DCCC will be lending Clark's campaign a hand with fundraising, communications and building grassroots support. It will also likely add to the national interest in the race as it heats up this summer.
To what extent the race is actually "competitive" electorally remains to be seen. It is clear that it will take more than a DCCC list to oust Bachmann (two years ago the DCCC added Bachmann's 2008 challenger, Elwyn Tinklenberg, to the same list).
Bachmann seems to relish the attention from Democrats. She has said for months that Nancy Pelosi is making her a "top target" to defeat this fall -- a fundraising talking point -- though Pelosi herself has said nothing to that effect.
Gov. Mark Dayton, speaking to a mostly Republican audience at the annual Minnesota Business Partnership dinner, repeated his familiar attack on the House GOP, blaming them for a legislative impasse on transportation.
It might have been the most watched political debate in history, and the emerging consensus is that Hillary Clinton prevailed over Donald Trump. But the record of post-debate polling suggests that a victory might not matter.
In a relentlessly antagonistic debate, Clinton denounced Trump for keeping his business dealings secret and peddling a "racist lie" about Obama. He cast her as a "typical politician" as he sought to capitalize on Americans' frustration.
