    I live in MN-06. Some of my neighbors have Bachmann signs in their yards-- though tonight I literally saw the first Romney sign of the fall. People vote for her because she's a pro-life Republican primarily...our district is very Catholic and many of the churches are led by priests who tell the laity to vote to save the babies.

    Take away the Catholics and you still have legions of conservatives who hate liberals, Washington, and Obama. They will all vote for MB regardless of what she says or does.

    The DFL has run three different kinds of opponents against her, two of which were well funded. Didn't even come close.

    I have my fingers crossed by little real hope that we'll beat her this time either.
