As goes Bachmann, so goes her challenger

(CNN) - Businessman Jim Graves, the Democrat who came close to defeating Rep. Michele Bachmann last year and who posed another challenge in 2014, has decided to indefinitely suspend his campaign–just two days after the Minnesota congresswoman announced her own decision against running for re-election.

"This was never about Jim Graves; this was about challenging the ineffective leadership and extremist ideology of Michele Bachmann on behalf of those she represents," Graves said of his decision in a statement.

After IRS targeting, tea party says their fears confirmed

Washington (CNN) – After some of their political groups were targeted for extra scrutiny by the Internal Revenue Service, members of the tea party say they feel a new justification for their claims of government overreach and big government.

Speaking at a rally on Capitol Hill Thursday, Rep. Michele Bachmann said the IRS's actions – which resulted in the resignation of the acting commissioner of the agency – could reflect a greater undercurrent of political misdeeds being carried out by the federal government. She specifically cited the president's health care law as a measure rife with opportunities to play political games.
