In an interview with RealClearPolitics, Bachmann said the words most political observers thought they wouldn't be reading about Bachmann, when she said "there’s a chance I could run" for president again.
Bachmann entered the race for president in the summer of 2011, winning the Ames Straw Poll in August. But her campaign lost momentum and she withdrew from the race in January 2012.
After winning her 2012 campaign for Congress in Minnesota's 6th Congressional District by just 4,296 votes over Democrat Jim Graves, Bachmann decided to not seek re-election this year.
For the first time in six years, Bachmann's name will not be appearing on a general election ballot. But don't fear, as Minnesota and the rest of America may be seeing her name again soon, but this time in another bid for the White House.
