MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann has landed on Time magazine’s 2011 list of 100 “most influential” people.

Time says its list recognizes the activism, innovation and achievement of the world’s most influential people. Bachman is considering running for the Republican Party’s nomination for president. Bachmann said in a statement Thursday that she’s humbled by the selection and “grateful to be named among such a variety of notable people affecting our world.”

Bachmann is among some recognizable names on the list, including Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, President Obama and Oprah Winfrey — and some not so recognizable, including game developer Peter Vesterbacka, fashion and film director Tom Ford and economist Esther Duflo.

Time published the list online Thursday. It hits the newsstands Friday.
