Michele Bachmann’s Teflon’s Wearing Thin: She’s Got A Primary Challenger

Last year, Bachmann was riding high. Her 2010 outing saw her crush the well-funded Tarryl Clark by thirteen percentage points. She had an immense warchest and lots of media exposure from her showing in the 2012 presidential primaries, her congressional district had just had a Democratic stronghold removed from it, and she was set to outspend her Democratic opponent by a twelve-to-one margin.
And she very nearly lost, a fact which does not seem to have gone unnoticed by various local Republicans.
