Bachmann on Limbaugh: Where's the outrage?

"I have gone through myself, and experienced, more things said about me and I have never seen this level of outrage on the left about what left-leaning commentators said about me," Bachmann said in an interview set to air Monday on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight."

Bachmann's home no longer in her Congressional district

(CNN) - A Minnesota judicial panel revealed redrawn congressional districts Tuesday that placed Rep. Michele Bachmann's home outside the district she represents.

Bachmann announced this month she was running for re-election in the sixth district, which includes parts of the Minneapolis-St. Paul suburbs. She said Tuesday she would still run in the sixth district, despite a new map drawn by the state's Supreme Court Special Redistricting panel that put her town, Stillwater, in the fourth district.

Bachmann: GOP is extremely ‘pro-women’

(CNN) - Former Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann on Sunday railed against critics who say the recent birth control controversy reflects a Republican Party that holds suppressive views toward women.

“There is no anti-women move whatsoever. The Republican Party is extremely pro-women,” Bachmann said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “What we saw was President Obama's signature piece of legislation, which is ‘Obamacare,’ demonstrated 3-D.”
