Michele Bachmann for Senate?

Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann isn’t ruling out a run for Senate, and the state Republican Party chairman is building her up as a potential candidate.

Bachmann’s office, in a statement released to The Hill, said Bachmann has no designs on a challenge to Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), but that she’s not ruling anything out either.

Bachmann spokesman Doug Sachtleben said Bachmann is focused on her current job but that “nothing’s off the table for the future.”

Most of the Bachmann-for-Senate talk has emanated from her extremely strong fundraising during her 2010 House campaign. She was the top fundraiser among House candidates last cycle, bringing in more than $13 million — a sum that was more than Klobuchar raised in her 2006 Senate campaign.
