    Video: Michele Bachmann already airing TV ads 17 months before the election to defend her seat

    Posted by Unknown Posted on 7:18 AM with No comments
    Even though the election is 17 months away, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann is airing about $85,000 in TV ads in the Twin Cities area in order to defend her seat. In the ad, Bachmann touts as an achievement her attempts to repeal Obamacare.

    Politicians typically do not begin running commercials until the year of the election

    Watch courtesy of Politico:

    Politico reports, “Bachmann, one of Capitol Hill’s most formidable fundraisers, has a big cash reserve to draw from. During the first fundraising quarter, she brought in $678,000 and reported having more than $1.8 million on hand.”
    Bachmann must know her seat is in jeopardy.  Federal investigators are interviewing former campaign staffers for the Congresswoman, surrounding allegations of intentional campaign finance violations. The investigators are working on behalf of the Office of Congressional Ethics, which probes reported improprieties by House members and their staffs and then can refer cases to the House Ethics Committee.
