Michelle Marie Bachmann is the 45th and current president of the United States. When elected, she became the first female President. She is a former U.S. House Representative and two time Minnesota State Senator.

Before the Presidency

Michelle was born to Norwegian parents in Waterloo, Iowa. She was raised as a Democrat, but she later identified as a Republican while attending Winona State. In 2000 Bachmann won the Minnesota State Senate seat for the 56th district, and won again two years later in 2002 for the 52nd district. During the next six years, Michele fought for a constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage. In 2004, she was appointed Assistant Minority Leader of the state senate.

In 2007, Michele Bachmann became the U.S. Representative for Minnesota's 6th congressional district. This made her the first Republican woman from Minnesota to be elected to the U.S. House. She served for eight years (four terms). Michele supported increasing the number of troops in Iraq, and also supported drilling in the Arctic during her time in the House.

2012 Election

It was speculated by the media that Michelle Bachmann would run for president. She didn't announce nor dismiss the idea of running, until she participated in a CNN Republican debate, where she announced that she had filed paperwork to become an official candidate.
