Sartell Mayor Joe Perske tells the St. Cloud Times that he's closer to deciding whether he'll jump into the race for the U.S. House seat being vacated by Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.
The DFLer says he could make an announcement as early as this week. Only one other Democrat has announced a campaign for the Sixth District seat, lead abatement activist Judy Adams. Perske, who is also a middle school teacher, said he was troubled that no other DFLers had leapt into the race. “Maybe I have to be that person,” he told the St. Cloud newspaper.
