I promise right now, should 2006 turn into Bauchmann running for Kennedy's seat, I will volunteer in any way to help anyone who runs against her (Please, come back, Patty!). I will also ask pretty litte Young Evaif she wants any help on her site....
Bachmann launches exploratory committee for U.S. House seat
February 7, 2005 BACHMANN0208
An outspoken state senator is taking the first steps toward running for Congress.
Second-term Republican Michele Bachmann of Stillwater is setting up an exploratory campaign committee to weigh a bid for the Sixth Congressional District.
Bachmann made the announcement in a letter to GOP activists.
She's one of several Republicans expected to get into the race if Republican Congressman Mark Kennedy runs for the U.S. Senate in 2006 against Democrat Mark Dayton.
Bachmann is best known for her efforts to pass a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage in Minnesota.
