Louie Gohmert: Gohmert is a fourth-term U.S. Congressman from Texas, and one of Bachmann’s biggest allies in Congress. He was an early backer of Bachmann’s failed bid to become the Republican House Conference Chairwoman and appeared with her during a high-profile press conference during the debt ceiling debate over the summer. At the time, he joked that the next president could be “even someone in this room.” Bachmann is the only candidate to receive a donation from Gohmert.
