Michele Bachmann is a born-again Christian and former Republican congresswoman from Minnesota who came to national attention during the presidential election of 2008 after a television appearance in which she encouraged the media to “take a great look at the views of the people in Congress and find out, are they pro-America or anti-America?” She was running for re-election in Minnesota’s 6th district that year, and despite those remarks being credited with more than a million dollars in Leftist donations to her opponent in the race, Bachmann was still re-elected by several points.

A former lawyer for the U.S. Treasury Department, Michele Bachmann began her political career in the 1990s as an advocate for charter schools and a critic of taxes. She was elected to Minnesota’s state senate in 2000 and for six years made her name in local politics as an opponent of taxes, homosexual “marriage” and the teaching of evolution in public schools.

Although a newcomer to national politics, Bachmann’s congressional campaign in 2006 was strongly supported by the Republican National Committee, and she had help in her campaign from such luminaries as Karl Rove and then-president George W. Bush. During her 2008 re-election campaign, she said candidate Barack Obama and his wife Michelle Obama concerned her because of their “anti-American” views.

Bachmann has a passionate fan base of conservative Tea Party Republicans. In 2011-2012, she ran unsuccessfully for President of the United States. She was reelected for a fouth term in Congress that fall, and on May 29, 2013, she announced that she would not seek reelection in 2014.
