MINNESOTA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is calling it quits in Minnesota.
Bachmann posted a nearly nine-minute video on her website early Wednesday morning.
The Tea Party favorite says that eight years is sufficient for her to serve in Congress. She also says her decision was not influenced by concerns that she would not be re-elected or by recent inquiries into her 2012 presidential campaign.
Bachmann promises to continue her work to protect constitutional conservative values.
