Bachmann faces fundraising challenge for House run

Larry Jacobs addresses the dire state of Bachmann's fundraising future.

"Her fundraising network is beyond fatigue," Jacobs said. "They're ready for hospitalization." Jacobs said Bachmann could find it difficult to gin up enthusiasm among constituents who had high hopes for her presidential aspirations only to see them dashed. "There's a letdown. She lost, and people had high expectations," Jacobs said. "She had to drop out because her campaign withered."
