    I thought she was a great candidate. However, I think 3rd party candidate (and the district profile) lead to her losing in 2008.

    I was in MN-6 until 2012 when redistricting fortunately moved me to MN-4 (Betty McCollum- DFL).

    Bachmann is a nut, but I think she unfortunately stays in this seat until she decides a Faux News gig is better for her.

    •  Really? She was the worst candidate (2+ / 0-)

      I've ever seen. She sent out fundraising letters in ALL CAPS with no punctuation. She couldn't speak well in public. She had no strategy at all from what I could see.

      It was a textbook example of someone who was well-known because of one issue (child safety) that had no ability to actually translate to politics.
