Michele Bachmann forms an Exploratory Committee

News broke today that Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann will form an Exploratory Committee in order to seek the Republican nomination for the Presidency in 2012. As the most consistent Conservative so far to enter, this is big news, yet to me, not much of a surprise. Due to the 2010 Census, Minnesota will be losing one Congressional seat. With Democrat Mark Dayton in the Governor's office and a Republican legislature, this is going to be a close decision, but there are many Democrats who want to cut up Bachmann's district. Furthermore, with significant TEA Party support and notoriety, as a result of her many television appearances, name recognition will not be as much of a challenge as former Governor Tim Pawlenty. While not having served as a Governor, she has significant government experience, as a three term Congresswoman and six year service in the Minnesota Senate. Prior to serving in elected office, Bachmann was an attorney. The past few months, Michele Bachmann has been hinting at running, and today, it looks as though it has become a reality.

Michele Bachmann can always be counted upon to stand by, articulate and espouse the Conservative viewpoint, and she will be greatly assisted by the TEA Party. Her entrance into the primary process is likely to make many wonder what effect it may have on a Sarah Palin candidacy, as their support comes from similar sources. Despite the questions some may have about her, Michele Bachmann brings a lot to the primary process and we here at "The 'Right' Solutions" are interested in seeing what she can offer, while at the same time, we wish her the best in her uphill battle to win the nomination.
