    Congresswoman Michele Bachmann says she will not run for re-election in 2014, ending her tenure as the representative from Minnesota's sixth congressional district after four terms.

    In a video released on her website early Wednesday, the Tea Party favorite says that, in her opinion, if presidents can only serve eight years that length of time is sufficient for her to serve in Congress.

    Bachmann claims her decision was not influenced by concerns that she would not be re-elected, or by recent inquiries into her 2012 presidential campaign.

    In January, a former Bachmann aide filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission, claiming Bachmann made improper payments to an Iowa state senator who was the state chairman of her 2012 presidential run. The aide, Peter Waldron, also accused Bachmann of other FEC violations.

    Bachmann says she considered not running again for her House seat in 2012 after her failed presidential bid, but felt another Republican candidate would not have enough time to adequately prepare for the race.

    "I will continue to work overtime for the next 18 months in Congress defending the same constitutional conservative values we have worked so hard on together," Bachmann says in the video.

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    I wonder if she'll run against Al Franken. Better start stockpiling popcorn now, just in case.

    Bachman would feed that clown Franken his lunch in a debate. Franken wouldn't debate Bachman for all the tea in China.

    Except that here in MN we have the most convictions for voter fraud than any other state in the country. Based on that and knowing how well the libtards cheat, she would end up loosing to Franken in the same manner that Norm Coleman lost to him.
    Liberals are proof that evolution is only a theory. Nothing that stupid could evolve past a monkey.
