Rep. Bachmann Rival Plans Rematch

Barely lost against her in 2012

|

Democrat Jim Graves says he's ready to take on GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann again.

Bachmann, the Tea Party favorite who ran for president, narrowly won a fourth term last year against Graves, the former CEO of hotel chain AmericInn. The Minnesota congresswoman defeated Graves by about 4,300 votes.

In a statement announcing his candidacy for 2014, Graves criticized those in Congress interested in "scoring political points" and said he's "not interested in celebrity, only solutions."
