Schier Postulates That Bachmann Will Gun for House Re-election

January 2, 2012

Steven Schier, the Dorothy H. and Edward C. Congdon Professor of Political Science, is quoted in a Jan. 2 article in Iowa's HometownSource.com regarding Sixth District Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, R-Stillwater, who is seeking the Republican party's presidential nomination. After winning a summer straw poll in Iowa, experts are predicting a fatal finish for Bachmann in today's caucus and likely end to her 2012 presidential aspirations. If that happens, Schier told the paper, she'll likely seek re-election to her House seat. "What else will she do?" Schier said.
