Michele Bachmann will run again come hell or high water
Michele Bachmann plans to run for another term in Congress, no matter what this week's redistricting brings.
Bachmann held a press conference at the Minnesota Capitol this morning to demand more transparency into state and federal medicaid programs, declaring plans to work with Republicans and Democrats on new oversight legislation.
After the announcement, Bachmann said she's already made up her mind to seek reelection, according to the Associated Press. This could make for an interesting race come election season, especially given Bachmann's history as a fundraiser.
A five-judge panel will release the redistricting maps on its website Tuesday at 1 p.m. Depending on how the new lines are drawn, Bachmann could potentially face Republican incumbent Chip Cravaack or Democrat Betty McCollum.
