Four-term Republican Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann continues to keep a relatively low profile now two months into the 113th Congress. The Gopher State’s 6th CD U.S. Representative has issued only nine press releases during this span – second lowest in her state delegation ahead of only blue dog Democrat Collin Peterson (three). DFLers lead the way with Betty McCollum at 23 statements, Keith Ellison at 20, and Tim Walz at 16 followed by Republicans John Kline and Erik Paulsen with 14, and returning DFLer Rick Nolan with 10. Through the first two months of the 111th Congress in 2009 Bachmann had issued twice as many statements with 18, and released 15 during the first two months of the 112th in 2011.
