In an email to supporters timed to coincide with this evening's Republican presidential debate, Minnesota's Sixth District Congresswoman Michele Bachmann announced her intention to seek the presidency in 2012.
Tarryl Clark has been added to a list of congressional candidates that Emily's List is assisting early in the election cycle. The national advocacy organization raised $38.5 million in the last election cycle to support pro-choice, female candidates.
Republican campaign strategist Ed Rollins, best known for overseeing President Ronald Reagan's 1984 re-election romp, has joined U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann's potential presidential campaign. Most recently, Rollins served as chairman of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee's 2008 presidential bid.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is the top pick to win the Iowa caucuses, garnering support from 21 percent of respondents, according to a new poll by Public Policy Polling. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and businessman Herman Cain tied for second with support from 15 percent of those surveyed.
Palin’s “One Nation Tour” is stirring speculation that she will enter the race for the Republican presidential nomination, in which she and Bachmann would compete for much the same constituency.
Around 4 o’clock last Saturday afternoon, the central drama of Session 2011’s closing days finally reared its head on the House floor. Shortly before the chamber recessed for dinner, GOP Rep.

Nearly four decades later, Bye is once again chairman of the 8th Congressional District at a time of political tumult. The defeat of 18-term U.S. House fixture Oberstar by Republican Chip Cravaack last year has set off a very familiar scramble for the 2012 DFL nomination.
Pawlenty garnered 5 percent support among those Republicans surveyed, while Bachmann saw her 6 percent total matched by U.S. Rep. Ron Paul.
Former Gov. Tim Pawlenty is now the second most likely Republican to end up with the 2012 GOP presidential nomination, according to the latest ranking from The Washington Post's Chris Cillizza. Only former Massachussets Gov. Mitt Romney ranks ahead of T-Paw on the list.
