In it, but not of it. TPM DC
The third term congresswoman is known as an incredible fundraiser. In the last election cycle, she brought in $13.5 million, more than any other Congressional candidate.
And the $2.2 million Bachmann has raised so far this year puts her ahead of a potential GOP presidential primary rival, Mitt Romney. Romney raised $1.8 million over the first 90 days of 2011through his Free and Strong America PAC.
