Michele Bachmann May Be Eyeing Al Franken's Vacated Senate Seat

Sen. Michelle Fischbach

Bachmann said during a recent interview.

Bachmann's unsuccessful 2012 presidential bid petered out after a sixth-place finish in the early Iowa caucuses. She said Trump has brought some biblical principles to Washington and she continues to "pray for an imperfect man". Franken announced he would leave the Senate following accusations that he had groped several women, and his final day as a senator is Tuesday. "The only reason I would won would be to have the ability to take these principles into the United States Senate". But there's also a price to pay.

Former Minnesota Republican U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann hasn't ruled out a run for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Democratic Sen. So has Tina Smith, the Democratic lieutenant governor whose term as an appointed senator begins Wednesday. His departure was strategic, Bachmann suggested, because Democrats want to use sexual harassment as an issue in upcoming campaigns. She's likely to run in the 2018 special election, and The Hill notes Smith would have "virtually unanimous support" from Democrats. I think he did.




Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton picked his second-in-command last month to replace Franken.

She falsely claimed in 2011 that HPV vaccines might cause mental retardation.

Bachmann has been accused of employing gay conversion therapy at her Counseling Care clinics over the years, and the clinics have been hit with health inspector violations in 2005, 2009 and 2017, according to NBC News.
