GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann sat down with an interview with MinnPost. She talked about the situations in Afghanistan, Iran and why so many liberals despise her:
“I don’t know. I’m a lovable little fuzz ball! I have no idea what they would have to fear. I guess you would have to ask them; they would have the better answer to your question. I am doing my job. That’s what I was elected to do. I don’t fear the left, and maybe that’s part of the loathing that they feel toward me. I’m not afraid to speak out on conservative positions and on issues. We’re a deep-blue state, we’re a strong liberal, Democrat state.
She also discussed a possible run for the U.S. Senate:
“I won’t close the door on anything. But, you know, I never anticipated going into politics. I never saw that as my future. I was an accidental state senator. I didn’t intend to run for office, and then I was recruited and encouraged to run for Congress when my predecessor, Mark Kennedy, ran for the Senate. So, elective office wasn’t something that I sought out. . …So, no, I don’t have my sights set on the U.S. Senate, or on anything else.”
