Michele Bachmann May Run For Al Franken’s Senate Seat

By on January 3, 2018

Michele Bachmann is back — or at least hinting that she will be back soon.

The former Minnesota lawmaker spoke with TV preacher Jim Bakker about her possible run for the senate. Now that Al Franken is out she is wondering if God wants her in.

Speaking to Bakker, Bachmann described how she has been contacted by people urging her to run for Franken’s Senate seat. She is now in the process of asking God if running is in his plan.

Bachmann, who since her failed 2012 run at the presidency has been named “pastor to the United nations,” said she would run in order to bring godly principles into the Senate.

She is, however, cautious of putting herself and her family up against the litigious abuses that come to those who choose to run for public office.  She fears the wrath of Washington insiders and, using Trump-sounding jargon, said that the “the swamp is so toxic.”

“My husband and I aren’t money people,” she said with her hand on her heart, “We’re just normal people. We’re not money people. If you’re a billionaire you can maybe defend yourself.”

In video provided by Right Wing Watch, Bachman elaborated. “I trust in a big God,” she said.

That said, she does not give all credit to the big guy. After speaking of her 2012 run for the presidency as if it were manifest destiny, she spoke of how central her campaign was to turning Washington as well as the nation against Obamacare.

“I feel like I was wildly successful … I didn’t win, but I moved the debate. So I didn’t shed a tear when I left the contest because I felt like, you know, I fulfilled the calling that God gave me,” said Bachman.

“So the question is am I being called to do this now? I don’t know,” she added.
