While Michele Bachmann tours on your dime and mine everywhere EXCEPT the district which she purportedly represents, Elwyn Tinklenberg will be going on an Energy Tour of his own. The difference being that Tinklenberg will keep his focus on the very people he would like to represent and their efforts to bring us closer to kicking the habit of oil and nonrenewable resources. He will be meeting with local leaders in the area along various stops to highlight the things going on right here at home in the 6th District.

    I noticed that Tink doesn't include anything in terms of increasing oil production.

    BTW, Rep. Bachmann is hoping to bring a Co-Del to the Sixth District, esepecially to the Monticello nuclear power plant.
