Bachmann says she won’t run in 2014

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) announced Wednesday that she would not seek another term in 2014.

In a video posted on her campaign web site, Bachmann said her decision was not based on any fear that she could not be re-elected. Nor was it affected, she said, by an ethics investigation into the finances of her failed 2012 presidential bid.

Her opponent in last year’s congressional race, Democrat Jim Graves, announced last month that he would run again.

“The law limits anyone from serving as president of the United States for more than eight years,” Bachmann said in the video. “And in my opinion, well, eight years is also long enough for an individual to serve as a representative for a specific congressional district.”

Nevertheless, the National Journal reported earlier this month that Bachmann had already begun airing campaign-style ads in her home state.
