I’m Carrie Lucking, the Communications Director for Tarryl Clark’s Campaign for Congress in Minnesota.

You may recall that just a few weeks ago, Michele Bachmann's so-called "Jim the Election Guy" was pulled from the airwaves and - we thought - gone forever.

Well, just in time for Halloween, Bachmann has brought "Fake Jim" back from the dead so he can tell more lies and scare 6th District voters into voting for Michele Bachmann. The good news is that we've created what may be our best video yet, called "Night of the Living Jims," featuring our Real Jims from the 6th District.

Check it out now!

In an amazing twist of irony, Michele Bachmann is now running negative ads on TV and radio attacking Tarryl Clark for - wait for it - running a negative campaign. This despite the fact that Bachmann herself has spent over $2 million on her over-the-top negative campaign. In fact, this latest ad featuring Fake Jim is her NINTH misleading attack ad.

We recently launched a fact-checking section of our website to make sure that voters know the truth about Tarryl's record of accomplishment, but combating Bachmann's attacks isn't cheap. We intend to maintain a strong presence online, on the ground and over the airwaves in the next two weeks to make sure voters have the facts they need to make an informed decision.

We know that no matter what the undead "Fake Jim" throws at us, we can work together to fight back. As the St. Cloud Times said when they endorsed Tarryl on Sunday, "Sadly, after four years in office, Michele Bachmann has proved with unabashed consistency that serving 6th District constituents is essentially her last priority."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
