  •  Bachmann... (0+ / 0-)

    Needs to lay low for a term.  She only won by 5k votes in the most Republican friendly district in Minnesota.  

    Minneapolis itself is covered by three districts, third, fourth, and fifth.  Bachmann's sixth district covers encircles the north half of Minneapolis and then extends northwest to St Cloud.  

    For those not familiar with Minneapolis, this is "Rich Whitey Villa" territory.  The poorer working class suburbs, the airport, the Mall of America, and business parks are concentrated towards the south end of the city along the forks of I-35.

    The 2012 election cycle was a very strong wakeup to Bachmann that her district is less willing to put up with her antics.
