Michele Bachmann says “she’s in” the race for president, but she hasn’t decided whether to announce she’s running for president yet. CNN is reporting she’ll form an exploratory committee.

Bob Collins has been with Minnesota Public Radio since 1992, emigrating to Minnesota from Massachusetts. He was senior editor of news in the ’90s, ran MPR’s political unit, created the MPR News regional website, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started the two most popular blogs in the history of MPR and every day laments that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
