About Michele Bachmann
Congresswoman Michele Bachmann was the first Republican woman to actively seek the job of President of the United States. Three years ago, without an extensive political organization, nor a significant major donor fundraising base, but with the encouragement and financial support of hundreds of thousands of common patriotic Americans, Congresswoman Bachmann entered the Presidential race. Just 60 days later, she won the first contest—the Iowa Straw Poll. That victory, and her subsequent eloquent and astute participation in 15 Republican Presidential debates, drew her international recognition and acclaim.
As a believer in the traditional values upon which America was founded, Congresswoman Bachmann consistently defends America’s religious liberties and the importance of the traditional family as a bellwether necessity for a stable society. She has also continuously worked to defend the right to life for all Americans, including the unborn.
With our government’s massive growth and huge increase in debt under the current administration, in July 2010, Congresswoman Bachmann was motivated to establish the Congressional Tea Party Caucus—to which she was elected Chairman five years in a row. She boldly calls for a renewed focus on upholding the principles as laid forth by our Founding Fathers in our Constitution and The Bill of Rights.
