    Default Michele Bachmann Says She's Considering Running For Al Franken's Senate Seat

    Former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) said over the weekend that she is considering running for Senate.
    Bachmann, who represented Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District for eight years, said in an interview with “The Jim Bakker Show” that people had urged her to run in 2018 to replace outgoing Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.). She said she is asking God if she should enter the race.

    “The question is: Should it be me, should it be now?“ Bachmann said. “But there’s also a price you pay. And the price is bigger than ever because the swamp is so toxic.”
    Bachmann retired from Congress in 2014 amid investigations into alleged violations of campaign finance law during her short-lived presidential run in 2012. The former tea party darling was briefly regarded as a serious presidential contender in 2011 after winning the Iowa straw poll, but she quickly flamed out amid low polling numbers and the unexpected victory of former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) in the Iowa caucuses.

    Well she is a lot more bomby but other than being Christian I don't really see much else they have in common.
