Bachmann Will Seek Fourth Term as the Sixth District's Congressional Representative
Rep. Michele Bachmann's announcement came in an interview with the Associated Press while she was reacting to President Barack Obama's State of the Union speech.
Sixth District Congresswoman Michele Bachmann will seek a fourth term in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2012.
"I'm looking forward to coming back and bringing a strong, powerful voice to Washington, D.C.," Bachmann told the Associated Press.
The news comes about a three weeks after she suspended her presidential bid following the Iowa caucuses.
Bachmann’s announcement came in an interview with the AP reacting to President Barack Obama's State of the Union speech.
The congresswoman’s spokesperson, Becky Rogness, confirmed the report about her upcoming re-election bid on Wednesday morning, but didn’t elaborate.
Still, it's unclear where the 6th District’s lines will be after redistricting. That decision is expected to be made next month.
“I am very thrilled to be in the position that I am today, and I am looking forward to continuing,”Bachmann told the Star Tribune. “Obviously we’ll see what happens with these maps … But I do intend to run again.”
