There has been much editorializing by others and myself about this race but given that it is officially over there really is no need to beat a dead horse. The only thing I would say is that whether you like or dislike Tinklenberg, he gives a hell of a fiery speech.

Bob Olson Nominating Speech:

The word on the street was that the person giving the seconding speech for Olson was going to be former Federal Judge, Miles Lord, but in the end it was a woman from the DFL Feminist Caucus.

Elwyn Tinklenberg Nominating Speech:

I decided to add the seconding speech given by Tarryl Clark given that she is my State Senator and a shining light in the DFL. It is she and Larry Haws that make having Michele Bachmann as a representative a little more bearable.
