Now that Al Franken is out, this politician is eyeing a comeback

Al Franken officially resigned his senate seat after facing mounting allegations of groping and forcing himself on women.

The resignation triggered a special election in 2018 to fill the remainder of his current term.

Now, one former Minnesota politician may have her eyes set on a comeback.

Former Congresswoman and presidential candidate Michele Bachmann says she’s been asked to consider running for Franken’s seat.



The Washington Examiner reports:

Former Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., said Tuesday she is considering running for Al Franken’s Senate seat, but is worried she will face disastrous attacks from the media and Democrats as a Christian politician.

“I’ve had people contact me and urge me to run for that Senate seat, and the only reason I would run is for the ability to take these principles into the United States Senate,” Bachmann said in an interview with Jim Bakker Tuesday. “The question is should it be me? Should it be now?”

The former Tea Party-aligned politician said she and her husband are mulling over their options, but are concerned about the cost of running for such high political office.

“There’s also a price you pay and the price is bigger than ever because the swamp is so toxic … My husband and I aren’t money people. And that’s the thing. We’re normal … If you’re a billionaire, you can maybe defend yourself. We’re not money people. You know you can have frivolous lawsuits filed against you all the time and then what do you do?” Bachmann asked.

“It is really tough if you are going against the tide in D.C. — if you are trying to stand for biblical principles in D.C. and you stick your head up out of the hole, the blades come roaring and they come to chop you off,” she added.




During her time in office, Bachmann was popular with many Tea Party supporters and Christian conservatives.

She also proved her fundraising prowess in the 2010 election cycle, raising $13.5 million — more than half of which came from small donors contributing $200 or less.

It would suggest that if she jumps into the race, she could be well positioned to challenge Democrats for the seat.

Meanwhile, as Michelle Malkin points out, liberals are already mocking Bachmann for praying about her decision.

What are your thoughts?

Should Michele Bachmann run to replace Al Franken? If not, who would you rather see run for the seat?

  1. Pray that Michele Bachmann does run and WIN – -she was a tremendous representative in Congress and I was so upset when she didn’t run for re-election again. Having her back, in the Senate, would be one of the most intelligent things voters have ever done, aside from electing President Trump!

  2. She will not only face opposition from all the anti Christian groups in Minnesota. She will find a lot of opposition from the so called “advocates for women” and all of the people Soros will pay to bus in.

  3. She will have to be tougher and more determined than her opponents. The GRACE OF GOD put Trump in as President and he can put Mrs. Bachmann in with our prayers and support.

  4. It is hard to serve two masters, but which one would reap the most rewards? If it is in God’s plan for Mrs. Bachmann to run then by all means she should. God does speak to us but we really have to listen carefully to hear His voice about our plan of action in every day life’s journey. With God’s strength and guidance, to serve in public service should be attainable. There are many ‘satan’s soldiers’ who will attack any one and any thing that God has made and created and nurtured. God is mightier than satan, but it sometimes doesn’t seem like it, but it is true and God is everlasting.

  5. Michelle my belle, Yes by all means she should run. God and the American people will be with her all the way. She would be a strong candidate for the Senate seat. She will be much better than any demonrat they will throw in there. No demonrat can win a honest election if their lives depended on it.

  6. Go for it Michelle. You already have the greatest support ever. Our lord Jehovah god almighty! Millions of patriotic Americans will be praying for you. You are greatly needed. Don’t listen or pay any attention to demorat liberal atheists. Knowing you are doing gods work is what will give you overwhelming strength. You will be greatly loved!! The best part is you’ll make those liberal haters squirm! We wil all be totally loving it!

  7. Michelle should be anyone with common sense’s Pick to Run.
    The most Decent Person in the picture.
    She can help God find his way into Washington D.C. Not many helping him.

  8. While not from her State I believe she would be a great Senator no matter which state she were to run in. Sadly though she is right about how DC would treat any Christian in Office who lived a true Christian life while there.

  9. YES, YES, YES! WE, THE PEOPLE, WHO WORK! WE WILL FIND THE $, TO SUPPORT YOU! GO GIRL! RUN FOR THAT SEAT & WIN! WE WILL HELP WITH OUR DOLLARS! HARD-WORKING, AMERICAN EARNED $! FOR YOU! WE KNOW, YOU CAN WIN THAT SEAT & HELP US! I AM FROM INDIAN & I CAN’T VOTE, BUT I CAN SUPPORT YOU!

  10. I think she will do fine and has a experienced background. She will be in favor. Franken didn’t have enough experience or knowledge in what he was doing? He was lost in the jungle and also to the democratic party. The smartest thing he did was to step down or it was going the chew him up! Michele is perfect for the job! Amen! Brad:)

  11. INCASE ANYONE MISSED IT,MR TRUMP BUILT THE WALL TODAY..HE LET BROWN GET CALIFORNIA TO BE THE FIRST SANCTUARY STATE IN THE HISTORY OF THIS COUNTRY..TRUMP PAID HIM NO MIND FOR A WHOLE YEAR..VERY FEW ILLEGALS WILL CROSS ANYWHERE ELSE OTHER THAN KRACKAFORNIA,WHY WOULD THEY?CALIFORNIA WILL BE MADE AN EXAMPLE OF THIS LIBERAL FOOLISHNESS WITHIN A YEAR

  12. Please Madam Bachmann run for the open seat. You have nothing to fear. We need to MAGA and you can help do it. I would love to come and visit the state again when it starts to except conservatives again.

  13. Absolutely yes she should run. Let the haters hate, they are so scared of this lady they might die from the rot that comes with their hate!

  14. It would be so wonderful to have a real and strong Christian to replace such a low grade creature. If you deside God would have you there you should pray for his guidance as to direction.

  15. Pray that Michelle runs for the Senate. America would be all the more the winner with you in the Senate! Missing you since you left the House of Representatives.We need you!

  16. Michele Bachmann is certainly qualified, as is Senator Coleman who in all probability is the true and rightful holder of the seat. Funny way democrats (yes dem-o-crats dem-o-crat party NOT democratic party) count votes!!! Maybe they should be required to repeat 3rd grade mathmetics.

  17. Liked her then. Like her now. Hope she runs and scores a touchdown! May she listen to Spirit, trust her intuition, find clarity…and make MinneSOta proud!

  18. Michele Bachmann for Senate! Can’t think of a better American to run for Franken’s former seat! She’s a true American who we NEED in D.C. Take your time Mrs. Bachmann, listen to your family and trust in the Lord to move forward in your decision. As you already know, the haters are going to hate, regardless. You are cut from a different cloth, one that has high morals and values along with your faith! God Bless you, your family and our great Country! MAGA!!

  19. Definitely go for it Mrs.Bachmann you’re an honest and good person who supports President Trump and would greatly help our nation and our President. Good luck if you do run you would be loved by many for your service to our country. Please seriously consider running. Sincerely from a Veteran who loves his country.

  20. Michelle, I will PROUDLY contribute to your run for that little jerk’s senate seat! America would be all the more the winner with you in the Senate!

  21. First, mocking is the same principles as racism or bullying. America was built on listening to the issues and deciding. Bullying or mocking usually ended in childhood play but with loaded pistols back then. Respect of another shows integrity. Bullying shows lack in substance.

  22. Ms. Bachmann would make an excellent choice. She may feel like a “lone voice, crying in the wilderness”, but there are many, many Christian conservatives who would agree we need a stronger voice in athiest, corrupt DC.

    • Amen to that! I hope she runs… and wins! That is, if she’s sincere in what she says and isn’t catering to all of us Veterans, Christians, right-wing, First Amendment right supporting, anti-abortion, hard working folks. Heaven knows we need such a person, now more than ever. In fact, ALL of our Government elected officials should be moral and conscientious folks. I just hope there aren’t more people out there that would have voted for Hillary voting against her… even if she’s a woman candidate.

    • GOD WORKS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS, HIS WONDERS TO PERFORM………
      MRS. BACHMANN, GOD HAS PLANTED THIS THOUGHT IN YOU….
      TRUST IN HIM….HE IS WITH YOU….NEVER FEAR….HE IS ALWAYS WITH US….

      • OH, PLEASE, DEAR, LORD GOD! ENCOURAGE MICHELLE, TO RUN FOR THE MINNESOTA SENATE! WE, THE PEOPLE, WILL SUPPORT HER-NATIONWIDE! WE KNOW SHE NEEDS FUNDS & WE WILL SEND THEM TO HER! SHE IS A LADY & AN AWESOME LADY, AT THAT! PLEASE, MICHELLE, PLEASE! TAKE THE CHANCE,WE ARE TOTALLY WITH YOU! GO, GIRL! GAMBLE & WIN!
