Tinklenberg v. Bachmann

Tinklenberg endorsed on the first ballot.

107.5 to 39.

72.4% on the first ballot, Olson's 26% is pretty disappointing, looks like he was the recipient of a lot of "Minnesota Nice" on the phones.

Larry Schumacher has provided excellent coverage of the convention all day long! The comments on his blog are rather entertaining as well.

It will be interesting to hear Tinklenberg's speech.

It will be even more interesting seeing how the Minnesota GOP and Congresswoman Bachmann react.

Congratulations to Elwyn Tinklenberg. It's time to get to work...

Sorry you couldn't make it today. I got some video of speeches from a variety of different candidates and will have them up on Youtube eventually.

Olson conceded his delegates to make it unanimous.

You are right, Schumacher did a great job with the liveblog so I will not be doing any analysis.

I very much enjoyed meeting you, Muse, and am sorry you couldn't come down Hal - but totally understand avoiding nasty roads.

The count was different than you say - Tink 107.5, Olson 39.5 - but the numbers don't add up to the total number of delegates.

Larry Schumacher did a phenomenal job of live blogging the convention.
