Steven Schier, the Dorothy H. and Edward C. Congdon Professor of Political Science, told the Princeton Union Eagle on Dec. 16 that Minnesota U.S. Representative and Republication presidential hopeful Michelle Bachmann fits the profile of previous national political figures from Minnesota. “I think she’s a Minnesota product,” he said.
