Franken's exit sets stage for Smith to join Senate

Senator Al Franken to Officially Resign from Office

Franken announced he would leave the Senate following accusations that he had groped several women, and his final day as a senator is Tuesday. "The only reason I would run is for the ability to take these principles into the United States Senate", she said, later adding, "The question is should it be me?"

"Am I being called to do this now?" "Should it be now?" Bachmann asked while appearing on the Jim Bakker Show in late December. "The price is bigger than ever because the swamp is so toxic", Bachmann said. "But he didn't do what Harvey Weinstein did", she said. But there's also a price you pay. So has Tina Smith, the Democratic lieutenant governor whose term as an appointed senator begins Wednesday.

Former U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, a one-time presidential candidate, told a broadcaster that she has been asked to run for the Senate, but has not decided. "So I didn't shed a tear when I left the contest because I felt like, you know, I fulfilled the calling that God gave me". She decided against running for re-election in 2014, after almost being defeated by a Democratic challenger two years earlier.

Bachmann, who last held a seat in Congress in 2015, said she has been approached by people urging her to run for Senate.

Bachmann resigned from Congress in 2015 after serving for almost ten years.

Bachmann acknowledged the challenge of running as a conservative Republican given the current political climate. She said Trump has brought some biblical principles to Washington and she continues to "pray for an imperfect man".

"I'm not saying that he didn't do some bad boy things".
