Since kicking off her presidential campaign in June, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann has missed 40 percent of the votes in the U.S. House, according to a report from The Hill.
The story says she’s missed 50 of 135 votes since officially announcing her candidacy June 27.
The Hill tried to ask her about it:
Asked earlier this month whether she would forfeit some of her congressional salary, Bachmann replied, “No comment.”
When pressed, Bachmann said, “I’m not doing an interview with you now.”
Bachmann’s campaign did not comment for this article.
Two other members of Congress are also seeking the Republican nomination for president:
Bachmann is one of three House members seeking the Republican presidential nomination, although Reps. Ron Paul (Texas) and Thaddeus McCotter (Mich.) are considered long-shots.
Said the story: Paul has missed 25 of 307 votes — about 8 percent — since entering the race May 13. McCotter has missed almost 10 percent: 13 of 135 votes since starting his campaign at the beginning of this month.
