Stillwater Lumberjack Days Parade Reprise

A commenter mentioned that Sue Jeffers was in the parade and wondered whether Governor Pawlenty had a contingent. I saw Pawlenty's contingent marching. Jeffers entry must have been at the end so I didn't see it. I did see and talk to some Jeffers people passing out stickers. There was no sign of DFLer Mike Hatch.

I also didn't see Patty Wetterling's contingent. I understand from a friend of mine who marched in that contingent that there were about 60 people in the contingent, and that Patty got a good reception from the crowd. There were a few Bachmann supporters who would yell "Michele's gonna kick your ass" to the Wetterling contingent - but most was positive. Avidor has a movie of Michele Bachmann's contingent over at Dump Bachmann.

Other candidates who were present include: David Francis (DFL, running for Michele Bachmann's senate seat), Ray VandeVeer (R, running for the same seat), Senator Brian LeClair (R, Woodbury), and his opponent Kathy Saltzman, Matt Dean and Mike Charron.

The Independence Party was out in force with a good sized contingent for John Binkowski (running for the US House seat against Michele Bachmann and Patty Wetterling) as well as a large Team Minnesota contingent with Peter Hutchinson.

If any candidates are reading this, and have photos of their contingents, email them to, and I'll post the photos.
