The Higher Education of the Woman Who Wants to Be President of the United States

U.S. Representative Michele Bachmann announced her candidacy for the presidency of the United States this week. Bachmann, who is the first Republican woman to be elected to the House of Representatives from Minnesota, represents a suburban district near the Twin Cities spanning six counties. Prior to her election to the House, she served in the Minnesota State Senate. The mother of five children, Bachmann has had 23 foster children in her home.

Representative Bachmann is a graduate of Winona State University in Minnesota. She earned a J.D. at the O.W. Coburn School of Law at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and an L.L.M. degree in tax law at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia.

A new Rasmussen poll of potential GOP presidential primary voters shows the conservative Bachmann trailing only Mitt Romney in the race for the Republican presidential nomination.
