Minnesota CD-6: Bachman Jumps To Commanding Lead

King Banaian and Andy Aplikowski report from the GOP convention in the Sixth Congressional District that Michele Bachmann has received 56% of the first-round ballots, coming close to the 60% needed for endorsement. Phil Krinkie, who had been considered a front-runner, only mustered 12% on the first vote and no one else got above 18%.

The convention is about to hold its next vote, but one has to presume that the impulse for unity will push Bachmann over the top. She will likely face off against Patty Wetterling in November in the race to replace Mark Kennedy, who gave up his seat to run for the Senate.

Stay tuned.

UPDATE 2:52 CT: Michele Bachmann won on the third ballot.
