Bachman To Run For GOP Leadership In House

U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann will run for a Republican leadership position in the House when the next Congress convenes.

Bachmann spokesman Sergio Gor says the Minnesota Republican will run for the party conference chair, which will be the No. 4 GOP post when Republicans take over in January.

Rep. Jeb Hensarling of Texas also says he’s running and others are considering it.

Gor says Bachmann will remain the chair of the House tea party caucus when she returns to Washington for her third term.

He says Bachmann will seek the job because she believes her brand of conservatives need a voice at the table of the Republican establishment.

The conference chair job is being vacated by Indiana Republican Mike Pence, a possible presidential candidate.
