ST. PAUL, Minn. — Now that Michele Bachmann has decided to end her run for president, another decision looms for the Minnesota Republican.
She must decide whether to seek a fourth term in the U.S. House or direct her newfound political celebrity elsewhere.
Should Bachmann decide to run again in the Republican-leaning 6th District she'd be a heavy favorite, provided it isn't significantly reshaped by redistricting. But some experts say she might aim for a different role, such as a position in a new Republican administration or a potentially lucrative spot on the speaking circuit.
David FitzSimmons, chairman of the 6th District Republican Party, says Bachmann was successful changing the tone of the debate during the presidential campaign. She was particularly outspoken in her opposition to the health care overhaul approved by Congress.
