Last night was Primary Night in Minnesota, and far-right extremist Sheila Kihne lost her challenge to unseat an incumbent Republican State Representative. Ms. Kihne more than just derailed her Tea Party Express candidacy; she got trounced by 20 points. Yes, TWENTY POINTS.
In a last minute surprise for the B side of the Mn Senate District 48 Republican Convention, Kihne announced her challenge to incumbent State Rep Jenifer Loon on convention day last March. Kihne led in each and every round of endorsement balloting. After the fifth and final round, Kihne led 54% to 40% but did not reach the 60% threshold for endorsement.

That such a deeply flawed candidate could not only deny endorsement but almost win it herself at that Convention only shows how far right the Republican activists in Eden Prairie are. Much has been written on Kihneís flaws. Thereís no point in rehashing them here, or going into new ones that would have been brought up had won Kihne won. Sheila, as they say in the political world, is an opposition researcherís dream come true.
