Bachmann won't seek reelection to House while running for president
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) will not run for reelection to her House seat while she runs in the GOP presidential primary, she said Tuesday.

The Associated Press reported that under Minnesota law, Bachmann could switch back and seek reelection to the House before June 5, 2012, which is after the early primary contests in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada.
