Nothing personal, Minnesota 6th Congressional District, but to U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, Iowa will always be home.
That’s according to a radio ad running in Iowa promoting her “Welcome back” event Sunday in her hometown of Waterloo, Iowa.

Bachmann’s voice cuts in, inviting first-in-the-nation-caucus-going Iowans to a rally at the famous Electric Park Ballroom in Waterloo, on the eve of her inaugural presidential kickoff on Monday.
“Let’s make history together in Waterloo,” she says.
