Tinklenberg running because of the 35W Bridge

That was my gut feeling when I first read at Dump Bachmann that Tinklenberg was in the race for the 6th.

The West Central Tribune has the scoop.
Former Minnesota transportation chief Elwyn Tinklenberg said Monday he's running for Congress because of problems brought to light by the Minneapolis freeway bridge collapse.

Really? It took the 35W bridge to fall to bring transportation issues to light?

People across the 6th are going to see this for what it really is, politicizing the 35W Bridge and I shudder to think what the right will dig up from Tinklenberg's term as Transportation Commissioner.
