Bachmann May Face Primary Challenge
The Minnesota Independent’s Andy Birkey reports that everybody’s favorite congresswoman, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), might have to fend off a challenger from her own party when she runs for re-election next year.
Woodbury attorney Chris Johnston says he is “mulling a run” against Rep. Michele Bachmann in the next Republican primary. Johnston says the district needs to be represented by a Republican “who thinks before they speak.”
Johnston, a self-described “” who has a practice in Roseville, says he is only exploring a run. On his blog he had some harsh words for Bachmann:
“You may have heard of her…Michelle Bachmann. Yes, that Michelle Bachmann — the hiding in the bushes during a gay rally, the “anti-American” hurling, malaprop spouting, they took me out of context, Congress woman. Mrs. Bachmann and I do share some strong conservative beliefs but it has become painfully aware that the people of the 6th District deserve to be represented by someone who thinks before they speak and will work hard to effectively represent every citizen of the district.”
