Once one of the tea partyâ€™s loudest voices on Capitol Hill, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann now shuns the national spotlight for Saturday morning coffees in St. Cloud.
These are the political consequences when a former presidential candidate wins re-election by a single point.
Fourteen months after dropping out of the White House race, Bachmann is attempting to recast her national profile into a local one. After a humbling year, the former state senator appears to be fortifying the roots that helped launch her quick ascent into the national consciousness and ultimately made her a contender for the GOPâ€™s presidential nomination.
â€œWhat Michele found is that running for president does not help you in your congressional district,â€ said former Rep. Vin Weber, R-Minn. â€œThe message that it sends is that you have higher ambitions and we are not your top priority. I donâ€™t think she wanted to send that message, but she did, and I think sheâ€™s back now reassuring people that being a member of Congress is her priority.â€
