Former congresswoman Michele Bachmann eyes Senate run for Al Franken's seat.
  Wednesday 03 January, 2018
Former congresswoman Michele Bachmann eyes Senate run for Al Franken\'s seat.

Miss the days of Michele Bachmann? You may be in luck.

Bachmann, a conservative who represented Minnesota in the House from 2007 to 2015, said people have asked her to run for Democrat Al Franken's former Senate seat.

"Iíve 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," she told televangelist Jim Bakker last week. "The question is, should it be me? Should it be now?"

She's not sure of the answer yet, but she's asking God for some guidance.

It may be akin to her bid for the presidency in 2012, when she said she felt a "calling" to run for the higher office. Bachmann ended her campaign after she placed sixth in the Iowa caucuses.

If Bachmann does launch a bid, she'll be up against Democrat Tina Smith, who was appointed to the seat by Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton, in a November special election. The winner of the contest will serve through 2020, the remainder of Franken's term.

Franken officially resigned from the seat on Tuesday, following accusations of sexual misconduct.
