Former Representative Bachmann To Take Open Senate Seat
Former Representative Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) has come forward for showing interest in running for disgraced Senator Al Franken’s seat.
Here’s what she had to say,
“I’ve had people contact me and urge me to run for that Senate seat. …And the only reason I would run is for the ability to take these principles into the United States Senate and be able to advocate for these principles.”
She also said said, “should it be me, should it be now? But there’s also a price you pay” and the “swamp is so toxic.”
“If you’re a billionaire you can maybe defend yourself, [but] we’re not money people. …So we’re trying to be wise—should we do this, shouldn’t we do this, what?”
