Minnesota’s Bachmann Sprints To TV With Health Care Ad

ST. PAUL (AP) — Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann has rushed out a television ad in hopes of capitalizing on the latest U.S. House vote to undo President Barack Obama’s health care law.

The Republican critic of the Affordable Care Act — dubbed Obamacare by foes — was to begin airing the ad Thursday night in Twin Cities market. She put about $85,000 into the TV spot.

It shows her speaking directly into the camera spreading what she calls “great news” about the vote. Bachmann sponsored the measure the House adopted, which has virtually no chance of winning Senate approval.

Bachmann narrowly won a fourth term over Democrat Jim Graves, who is running again in 2014. Bachmann has yet to say equivocally she will run again, but is raising money to facilitate a possible campaign.
