Michele Bachmann as legislative candidate in 2000
More than ten years ago I called Michele Bachmann for her first television interview. She was on her way to knocking out an incumbent state senator. She wasn’t really interested in being on television back in 2000, but that quickly changed. We’ll have that rarely seen footage tonight on Almanac along with the story of the Minnesota lawmaker who suggested she should first run for office. It’s a candid look at the congresswoman that has America talking.
