Following Presidential Announcement, Bachmann Will Not Seek Re-Election To Congress

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) announced today she will not run for re-election in Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District while campaigning for the Republican presidential nomination. Minnesota state law would, however, allow her to seek re-election if she drops out of the primary race by June 5, 2012, just two months shy of the August Republican National Convention in Florida.
