Some days, really good news comes through the door and today is one of those days.
What is the good news?
From The Washington Post:
Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann swept aside doubts about her political future Wednesday, declaring less than a month after ending her presidential bid that she will seek a fourth term in Congress.
Bachmann’s decision ended speculation she might be ready to move on from the House, perhaps leveraging her popularity among some conservatives into a career in talk media. Despite her high profile, Bachmann has been only a marginal player in Congress.
“I’m looking forward to coming back and bringing a strong, powerful voice to Washington, D.C.,” Bachmann said in an interview with The Associated Press. She said a formal announcement would come later.
Unless redistricting radically changes Minnesota’s Republican-leaning 6th District, Bachmann figures to be a heavy favorite. Other Republican hopefuls had stood aside awaiting her decision. No Democrats have yet declared for the race.
Bachmann is a potent fundraiser who brought in $13.5 million in her last House race, but she likely would start from scratch after the presidential campaign. A campaign finance report that would show how much money she can bring to the race isn’t due until the end of the month.
Michele Bachmann is a great leader and a class act. She is one of the most reliable conservative votes in Congress today and given the leadership of RINO John Boehner, we need all of the good conservatives we can get.
After her Presidential run, Bachmann should not only be reelected but she should move up the leadership of the House.
Michele Bachmann has not said what her future plans are. There are many in the Tea Party who hope her future plans include being Speaker of the House.
It will be up to her to decide what her future plans will be.
But she should know the Tea Party supports her!
As soon as her reelection website is up, we will have it for you, here on Tea Party Nation.
This is great news from a great lady. Our new Republican President will need her help and I'm sure he will be thankful for it
Well said, hijinx60.
Michele was Tea Party when Tea Party wasn't cool!
Sounds like a favorite old C/W song. :~))
Nah, there is no mention of mama, trains, trucks, prison or getting drunk.
She has my vote for any office she runs for!!!! I donated to her cause until she bowed out gracefully and I can support a lady of yer character and beliefs. She is a winner and leader!!!
Speaking of Boehner she needs to be Speaker.
Agreed--and if not her, someone else for certain--ABB--Anyone But Boehner!!
Terrific for her!!!! I wish her all the best!!! My prayers are with you, Michelle!!!!!
