U.S. Representative, MN District 6
Write-in Aubrey Immelman

In the final week of the campaign, Immelman for Congress launched a ground assault in Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District with an advertising blitz on all fronts — running ads in 25 newspapers across the district with a combined circulation of approximately 150,000 (nearly 250,000 when repeat runs are factored in).

By Election Day tomorrow, we wil have run ads in the Albany Stearns-Morrison Enterprise, the Anoka County Union, the Becker Citizen, the Big Lake West Sherburne Tribune, the Buffalo Wright County Journal-Press, the Clearwater Tribune, the Cokato Enterprise & Dispatch, the Cold Spring Record, the Drummer (Wright County), the Forest Lake Times, the Howard Lake Herald Journal, the Kimball Tri-County News, the Lake Elmo Leader, the Monticello Times, the Paynesville Press, the College of St. Benedict/St. Johns University Record, the Rockford Area News, the St. Cloud Times (4 runs), the St. Joseph Newsleader, the St. Michael Crow River News, the Sartell Newsleader, the Stillwater Courier, the Stillwater Gazette, the Waite Park Newsleader, and the Woodbury South Maplewood Review.

Our ads are neither attack ads nor issue ads — position statements can be read on this website — but public information ads that inform voters of the write-in option in the 6th District and illustrate how to cast a write-in vote for the candidate.

Voters are advised that for write-in votes to be counted, the name must be written in on the ballot and the oval circle to the left of the name must be clearly marked.



We have launched a new YouTube video on the Immelman for Congress YouTube channel, courtesy of KMSP Fox 9 in Minneapolis, which reports on Immelman’s reasons for challenging Rep. Michele Bachmann as a write-in candidate. The full text of Immelman’s indictment of Bachmann can be read here: Write-in Candidacy Announcement.
