The growing narrative with embattled Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) is that she’s in trouble.
She faces a police investigation, lawsuit, State Senate Ethics panel and an independent special counsel investigation in Iowa. She faces a Federal Elections Commission complaint and a Office of Congressional Ethics investigation in DC.
She barely beat DFLer Jim Graves in 2012 in a new, more conservative district.
Rothenberg rates her the fifth most likely district to flip:
5. Minnesota’s 6th: Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann vs. Democrat Jim Graves
Bachmann won a squeaker in November (50.5 percent to 49.3 percent), and Democrat Graves has announced that he wants a rematch. There are rumors that the controversial congresswoman may retire rather than seek another term, but that probably would make Graves’ job harder in this reliably Republican district.
