At least the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee thinks we're interesting.
The DCCC put two Minnesota U.S. House races on its list of 26 "races to watch."
The two? The 6th congressional district, which snakes around the northern suburbs to St. Cloud, and the 3rd congressional district, around suburban Hennepin county.
"The DCCC will help them become even more competitive in November," Jon Vogel, DCCC executive director said.
Republican U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann has held the 6th for two terms; Republican U.S. Rep. Erik Paulsen was elected in 2008.
There are multiple Democratic candidates in both races and the DCCC pegs them both as having primary races (although that may not yet be clear in the 3rd.)
