Michelle Bachmann endorses Cynthia Dunbar for Sixth District Republican nomination
“Cynthia Dunbar’s long track record of standing firm on conservative issues comes from her core beliefs,” said Bachmann. “Her faith in God and commitment to the Constitution are what guide her every decision and enable her to stand boldly in opposition to the establishment. I am proud to give her my full endorsement in her bid for Congress.”
Bachmann previously represented Minnesota’s Sixth District and was the first Republican woman to represent the state in Congress. She served as one of the earliest supporters of the Tea Party movement, and was one of the founders of the House Tea Party Caucus. In 2012, Bachmann ran for the Republican presidential nomination, and won the Ames Straw Poll in August of 2011.
“I have a tremendous amount of respect for Michelle Bachmann as one of the earliest founders of the conservative movement that we are continuing to fight today. In large part, the movement she helped start was what delivered Donald Trump the presidency and Republicans the majorities we now hold in Congress,” said Dunbar. “To have her endorsement in my campaign is an honor. The support we’ve received from conservative leaders across the county shows that we are truly the campaign in this race fighting on behalf of the people. We are excited that Michelle has recognized this as well, and I am humbled to have the support of someone of her stature.”
