Rothenberg Political Report lists Bachmann in 2014 flip list

The Rothenberg Political Report plays a critical role inside the Washington, DC bubble. Stuart Rothenberg fuels narratives. He ranks and rates races for the DC insiders.

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.

At least, Marcus can come out, now.
