Paul Schmelzer of The Minnesota Independent reports that Aubrey Immelman has registered as a write-in candidate for the GOP as an alternative to Bachmann:
He sees himself as an “alternative for disillusioned Republicans.”
“The Republican Party needs to rebuild its image, and this cannot be done when its elected representatives say these kinds of things,” he told the St. Cloud Times’ Larry Schumacher.
While Immelman garnered only 14 percent of the vote in the Republican primary, his entry may shave off support from Bachmann, who last week lead DFLer Tinklenberg by just four points, according to a Democratic party poll.
