Bachmann to Run for House Seat Again

by Katrina Trinko

Michele Bachmann told the Associated Press in an interview today that she will run again for her House seat in Minnesota. Bachmann’s district — Minnestota’s sixth — is rated R+7 in the Cook Partisan Voting Index. Still, her frequent references to Iowa as her home state during the campaign and the number of congressional votes she missed while campaigning could provide fodder for an opponent. Last cycle, Bachmann won 53 percent to Democratic opponent Tarryl Clark’s 40 percent (an independent candidate nabbed 6 percent). And it wasn’t a cheap race: Bachmann raised a record-breaking $13 million to Clark’s $4 million.
