A little dispatch filed from my trip to Minnesota (I realize I haven’t been favoring y’all with proper stories lately, but production has tended toward the wonky/subscriber-only of late).

MINNEAPOLIS — Is this Republican presidential campaign big enough for two Minnesotans?

It’s a tricky question at the RightOnline conference in Minneapolis, where some 1500 conservative activists have gathered to hone their internet organizing chops and be wooed by conservative organizations and office-seekers, including two home-grown presidential candidates: Former Governor Tim Pawlenty and Rep. Michele Bachmann, who represents the state’s sixth Congressional district.

One lesson learned on the trip: Whatever your impression of Bachmann is, she’s quite formidable on the hustings.
