Minnesota Congresswoman who called for the press to investigate Congress to expose the members who were “un-American” was re-elected

We didn’t see the election results on TV regarding Michele M. Bachmann,the Minnesota Congresswoman who called for the press to investigate Congress to expose the members who were “un-American”.    Her controversial comments made on MSNBC’s Chris Matthews show resulted in $1 million dollars in campaign contributions being made to her opponent Elwyn Tinklenberg within the following three days.
Her own party reacted to her comments by cutting off funding for her race.  Regardless, of these efforts she was reelected by a margin of 3% over Tinklenberg.   She received 46.4% of the vote and Tinklenberg receiving 43.4%, with Independent Bob Anderson receiving 10%.
