Newly filed Federal Election Commission documents show Republican Michele Bachmann’s presidential campaign was nearly $1.05 million in debt as of January 25, 2012. Holding the bills were numerous campaign advisers. Photographers, direct mailers, transportation companies and caterers were also owed money.
Bachmann’s focus is now back on Minnesota where she’s running for reelection in the 6th Congressional District. So far three Democratic challengers have emerged, two are announced candidates, a third is “exploring” a run.
Bachmann has been aggressively attempting to raise money in recent weeks, sending supporters urgent emails seeking contributions.
She has a history of strong fundraising. In her last run for the House in 2010 Bachmann took in $13.5 million.
