Michele Bachmann Considering Running For Minnesota Senate Seat To Replace Al Franken…

Former Minnesota congresswoman Michele Bachmann appeared on Jim Baker’s broadcast last week and indicated she might possibly enter the 2018 special election Senate race open due to Al Franken’s resignation.  [Video Here]

Mrs. Bachmann was known as a deficit hawk and previously represented Minesota’s 6th District from 2007 to 2015. In addition to founding the Tea Party Caucus in the House of Representatives, she also ran for the 2012 presidential nomination.  She is now 61-years-old.

Interesting consideration.  During her previous time in office she was often a target of severe sexist attacks from left-wing media pundits and Democrat opposition.

    I hate how she was treated last time around, she was very honest and a GOOD WOMAN! I hope she will run. She was not “out there” or unhinged – she simply spoke truth.

    I believe she helped Neil Gorsuch through the nomination. but I might be wrong.

    Michelle is the real deal. I had the pleasure of meeting her last fall- she had just come back from the UN General Assembly in September. She’s a prayer warrior- actually did a physical prayer walk around the outside of UN while the assembly was in session.

    She told me that the statue in front the UN building of St. George slaying a dragon had just been restored and replaced and that few people know what the dragon stands for… ISLAM.

      So! We are always going to let the media determine our candidate for us? That’s what screwed up Sarah Palin because there was no pushback and no fight from her own party. Hopefully those stupid, idiotic days are over. Many more people now see the media for what they are, far-left hacks if not communists.

        She has an uphill battle as Senator here in the Land of 10k Lakes. Her position on traditional marriage would be the battle cry against her. That would rally the left and the very large middle that apologetically finds themselves in the oxymoronic position “I am conservative financially but liberal socially”…these are MN’s centrists and Bachman would be crucified by the left as the next coming of the devil that would tip the center against her. If she softened on her position there she might have a chance, but I think that would not be within her principal beliefs. She is a strong woman though….and I would love her turn it around that the StarTribune and their DFL collaborators are misogynistic and hate her because she is a woman.

    You never know, but I think people who reside in right media tend to automatically morph religious conservatives that are really Cruz types with the Presidents winning formula. It was very obvious in Alabama with the polls before the hit pieces that it was going to be a close race..

    President Trump was proud to have Peter Thiel(Homosexual) as a prime time speaker and said numerous times Planned Parenthood did some good things. He was totally outside the political box and actually underperformed in deep red districts and won with independents and cross-over democrats who aren’t social conservatives….I like Bachmann, but I don’t see her getting that vote at all..

      Cruz is a neocon globalist who refused to endorse our President at the RNC. His wife worked for Bush 1 Clintons 2 terms and Obama. Our President fired her because she wrote the TPP. Look it up Ted Cruz on this page he gave Obama his orders. He will never be President but Bachman won 4 times in Minnesota and in my opinion she can win again. Do not blame her for endorsing Lindsey Graham many people did not know what a piece of garbage he was until years later. Bachman endorsed Our President before the election started.

      I agree and with a poster earlier up, if the Republicans stick with the winning formula, trade, economy, manufacturing and jobs, maybe illegal aliens, it would be a win. Putting social issues on the forefront would be a lose and I’ve heard the twin cities are very liberal. Pres Trump ran on all my hot button issues, which didn’t involve social.

      The social issues are a culture war, and media, entertainment, and academia have been the biggest perpetrators of our society’s degradation in morals. The culture is rotting on the inside. I’m 49 but I still remember a time when living together before marriage was considered a sin, now no one bats an eyelash. I still care, but no politician is going to lead a spiritual or moral revival at this point and we need red seats now.

        Honestly, I’m not really sure why social issues should be a huge big deal in a Senate campaign.

        Probably Planned Parenthood because the issue of funding it may come up as a Senator, but gay stuff? There’s a Supreme Court decision. What else do you need to say as a candidate?

        The media would yip and yap at her heels OF COURSE no matter what she says or does, but she could lay out her positions on economic/populist issues and run on that and stiff arm them when they try to drag her into social issues.

          What to do about PP is to go after them for the evil doing, like selling parts, if I’m not mistaken, I heard that is finally being investigated. Make an example of this to the public, make them think twice and hopefully more of society would develop a conscience. Make it known that they do nothing for women’s health but provide abortions.

          I have to say, before Pres Trump, it seemed every race was an argument between the two parties of gay marriage and abortion. They did this to distract us while robbing us blind. Pres Trump was the only one that addressed the economic issues, and yes, illegal aliens are also an economic issue as well, and I have to say that was probably my number one issue by how much it affects everything. He waved the LGBT flag at his rally, he isn’t going after gays. He believes in God and prayer and the right to life, but he is trying to help all Americans in the best way to reach our fullest potential. He is not going to be a moral dictator. And this is how he won the election.

    Raven, thanks for pointing out that there are two Senate seats at play in Minnesota! Franken of course, and also Amy Klobuchar is up for re-election and could potentially lose to a Republican. So Jim Newburger has already decided to run against Klobuchar and hopefully he’ll just stick with that plan and let someone else go after Franken’s seat. Can you imagine BOTH Democraps losing their seats to Republicans?

      Can someone explain to me how this works? The special election is Nov 6 2018 which I suppose is the same day as the regular election. Normally there would be a primary earlier in the year. Is there a primary for the special election too?


      • prenanny says:

        yes it is called a special election as it is in the midst of a senate term, not a full term.
        Whatshername was appointed until such time as a special election can take place, there will be another election for the socalled franken seat in 2020.
        There will now be a primary and a GE vote that coincides with whatever offices were going to be on ballot in the 2018 cycle.
        No idea if they are going to have two separate ballots.


    • Raven says:

      Yes, Covfefe999, I can imagine both seats being held by two adults. It brings great joy to my soul just thinking about it.

        “Hatch, a Mormon who has said he’d not seek re-election if Romney wanted to run…”

        “For his part, Trump phoned Romney on Tuesday — after the president’s visit to Mormon-dominated Utah on Monday — to chat, the first time the two have spoken for quite some time, a senior White House official told The Salt Lake Tribune. The official, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss the conversation, said it was “cordial call” and didn’t last long.
        “Both the governor and the president were in good spirits,” the official said.
        They discussed tax cuts and Trump’s actions to shrink two Utah national monuments, but the official wasn’t sure if the two talked about Bannon’s comments or whether Romney was interested in running for Senate.”


        I guess for Utahans, “SenatorRomney” is already a done deal. More’s the pity.

      I searched using DuckDuckGo…and found a ‘parody’ piece that claimed that:

      “Marcus Bachmann Endorses Lindsey Graham”

      It’s obviously a joke, because of Marcus Bachmann’s program to ‘help people to resist their homosexual tendencies using the power of prayer’.
      Marcus is Michelle’s husband.

      So perhaps there was another ‘joke’ article that said the same thing about Michelle.
      You know how people will fall for these things…and then pass them on as ‘true’.

    I’m confused, If Minnesota is so distrustful of outsiders, how did they welcome so many Moslems?

    I know it was the religious charities bringing them in, etc, etc, etc. it just seems strange.


  26. MfM says:

    As I said earlier, I don’t know Minnesota or the candidates who might be available for the two seats, so Bachmann might be a decent selection. She certainly has name recognition.

    One major advantage is that she and the party KNOW what they are going to attack her on. A new candidate would be hit with something they dug or made up. She’s a good speaker and will get the kind of air time Trump did because she is controversial.

    Lastly, how is Minnesota on average going to make out with the new tax law? That could be a selling point if most in the State benefit from it.

    Michelle will be attacked viciously and false reports of every kind of vile claims will be made. None will be true, but look what they did to Moore.
    Very few defended Moore, few defend Palin and fewer defended Bachman when she was a congresswoman.
    So the question is, will you fight for her? She is incredibly on the budget and a true numbers cruncher. She is incredibly on true American values and fights for freedom. That is why the left attacks.

    Congressman Jason Lewis ( MN. 2nd ) is a vastly superior candidate than Ms. Bachman. While Michelle is polarizing, Mr. Lewis carries none of the lefts talking points that could be used in a general campaign. He has statewide name recognition and is a decent guy, not to mention he is a MAGA kinda guy…..
