Six Republican House members voted for a tax and transportation package that the Minnesota legislature recently passed over Gov. Tim Pawlenty's veto. They are paying a price politically for their votes.
Rep. Kathy Tingelstad announced yesterday that she will not run for reelection. Her decision comes just days before local party activists will meet to endorse a candidate. She apparently was not going to be it.
Three of the six have failed to gain their local party's endorsement. The other three have yet to face their endorsing conventions.
"I am loyal, believe me," Tingelstad told the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "I've been asked about 150 times in the last month to change to the Democratic party and I've chosen not to do that."
