Minnesota Daily Political Roundup: 10/16/2008

A new poll that shook up the 6th congressional district race, a new ad in that race that is downright embarrassing, debates, awkward policy, Hillary. Lots of stuff happening today in the Minnesota political world. And we also have news of Norm Coleman's disturbing ties to Saddam Hussein's former lobbyist and Barack Obama's deeply troubling ties to crazy delicious breakfast food. All that and more in today's Minnesota daily political roundup.


-The biggest news of the day is a new poll of the 6th district congressional race that has Bachmann leading Tinklenberg 42-38, basically a statistical tie! I had been down on our hopes in the district but now I think we have a fighting shot!
