Bachmann's announcement to run again could bring spotlight to Minnesota race

Eric Ostermeier discusses Bachmann's campaign for re-election.

But there's little evidence Bachmann's presidential bid made her less viable as a congressional candidate, said Eric Ostermeier, who authors the Smart Politics blog for the University of Minnesota's Humphrey School of Public Affairs. Furthermore, Ostermeier said there is scant historical evidence that a failed run for president harms a representative's re-election chances.
