Another well-known Republican is dropping out of the race to replace Michele Bachmann in Minnesota's 6th Congressional District. Amy Koch, the former state Senate majority leader from Buffalo, says Tuesday she's not running.
Former Minnesota Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch is striking back at top Republicans over her 2011 resignation after an affair with a staff member, accusing them of pledging to give her time to talk to her family and then promptly leaking word of the affair to media.
The Minnesota Republican operative fired by the state Senate after an affair with the majority leader says he believes they were both victims of a power grab by other Republican senators.

A fired Minnesota state Senate staffer is threatening to expose adulterous affairs by other legislators as part of a potential lawsuit over his firing. Michael Brodkorb's legal strategy is laid out in a notice of claims filed with the state Tuesday.
