Former Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is contemplating a run for the Senate — and she’s calling on a higher power to help make her decision.
Via Right Wing Watch, Bachmann appeared on Christian broadcaster Jim Bakker’s program and said that she has “had people contact me and urge me to run for that Senate seat” that will soon be vacated by outgoing Sen. Al Franken.
However, she told Bakker that she was wary about wading into the Senate race because she’s worried about paying a price that she described as “bigger than ever” because “the Swamp is so toxic.”
Bachmann lamented that she wasn’t a “billionaire” who had the funds to properly defend herself against attacks against her reputation, but she said that she would consider getting into the ring if God gave her the okay.
“I fulfilled the calling that God gave me,” Bachmann said of her unsuccessful 2012 presidential run. “So the question is, am I being called to do this now? I don’t know.”
Bachmann, much like President Donald Trump, has gained notoriety over the years for spouting conspiracy theories that have no basis in reality. Among other things, she has in the past insisted that HPV vaccines posed a risk of inducing “mental retardation” in young girls and has also warned that Hezbollah plans creating missile sites in Cuba.
