ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - The Democrat who narrowly lost to U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann last year is seeking a rematch.
The St. Cloud Times reports Thursday that businessman Jim Graves will run again for Congress in Minnesota's 6th District. That's the St. Cloud and northern Twin Cities-area seat that Republican Bachmann has held since 2006.
Graves is a longtime hotel company executive who founded Graves World Hospitality, a company with holdings that include the Graves 601 Hotel in downtown Minneapolis. He grew up in St. Cloud.
In 2012, Graves lost to Bachmann, of Stillwater, by about 4,300 votes in what was one of the nation's closest House races. His campaign manager told the Times he felt an "outpouring of support" from people who want him to run again.
