Michele Bachmann for Republican Conference Chair

The Republicans have a fight on their hands for a key leadership position in the new Congress, pitting Michele Bachmann against Jeb Hensarling for Republican Conference Chair. The institutional support seems to be with Hensarling, but I think the Republicans need to get away from all that tired institutional nonsense and get Rep. Bachmann into leadership. After all how can you have an entire Republican leadership team without a “true constitutional conservative”? Eric Cantor and Paul Ryan have announced their support for Hensarling, both obviously oblivious to the true benefits that Rep. Bachmann would bring to leadership. From her Facebook page announcing her candidacy.

“Constitutional conservatives deserve a loud and clear voice in leadership!”

Amen to that Rep. Bachmann. Democrats should hope for no less.
