Michele Bachmann Wins Close Election
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), founder of the Tea Party Caucus and an unsuccessful candidate for the GOP presidential nomination, hung on to her House seat by narrowly defeating challenger Jim Graves.
Bachmann, whose controversial statements leading up to the election included accusing President Obama of “apology and appeasement across the globe,” was declared the winner by the Associated Press with 98 percent of precincts reporting. She led Graves, a prominent businessman, by just over 3,000 votes out of nearly 350,000 votes cast.
Well, at least Jon Stewart will have material for the next two years.
