Congratulations to AJ Kern for a hard fought (but under reported) 6th District Congressional Campaign to represent the Republican Party in November.
Smart Politics reported opponent Tom Emmer outraised Kern’s campaign 61:1, but Kern received 26.5 percent of the tallies. The Minnesota Secretary of State reported Kern won Stearns County 49.64 percent to Emmer’s 47.48 percent.
It appeared as though the St. Cloud Times was blacking out coverage of this election.
Those of us who supported Kern’s constitutional conservative campaign with our votes, donations, yard signs, billboards, working parades and county fairs, and spreading the word on why you deserved to be elected say thank you! You did us proud!
There is worry in the 6th District — worry about jobs, our schools, an eroding tax base, an aging population, cost to care for our veterans, public safety and whether our Second Amendment rights will be preserved.
We will be looking to Emmer to address these issues and support bills good for all the 6th District instead of international concerns, following administration coercing, VOLAG pressure and lobbyist wishes.
Please show the 5,217 Kern voters that you will work to win back their votes.

Congratulations to AJ Kern…
For a hard fought (but under reported) 6th District Congressional Campaign to represent the Republican Party in November. AJ was outraised by Emmer by a 60:1 ratio but received 26.5 % of the vote.
Those of us volunteers that worked for your election and many others that supported your Constitutional Conservative Candidacy by donations, placing yard signs and bill boards, working the parades and County Fairs, and spreading the word on why you deserved to be elected. THANK YOU.
YOU DID US PROUD!
The Times who adopted a policy of black out to any AJ Kern Campaign news finally found a way to cover the Primary with a small front page headline today (the 11th)….”Primary win is weakest since 1962″ with the majority
of their front page dedicated to and celebrating a primary win in District 60 B in Mpls. So much for local coverage!
The actual statistics that may have interested your readers were omitted from the article.
For instance…AJ won Stearns County 49.64% to Emmers 47.48% showing a need for Tom Emmer to become the conservative he claims to be on the campaign trail represent the people who elected him.
Simply said there is worry in the 6th district…worry about jobs, our schools, eroding of our tax base, aging of our population, cost to care for our veterans, public safety and will our Second Amendment Rights be preserved?
We who supported AJKern will now be looking to Tom Emmer to address these issues and sign bills that will be good for all the 6th District instead of International concerns, following Administration coercing, volaag pressure
and lobbyist wishes.
Please show the 5,217 Primary AJ Kern voters (Emmer votes at 13,548) that you will work to represent the entire 6th District.!
