Minnesota Public Radio reports:
Former Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann has ruled out a run for U.S. Senate seat next fall, MPR News has confirmed. Bachmann’s reasoning: She didn’t have any “sense from the lord” that she should try for the seat, which was left vacant after Al Franken resigned following allegations of sexual misconduct.
“It became very clear to me that I wasn’t hearing any call from God to do this,” Bachman told radio host Jan Markell. Last month, Bachmann said she hadn’t ruled out a run and that she and her husband were considering their options.
