Bachmann and her husband have five children. They also worked with a private foster care agency to house 23 children in their home during the 1990s. Bachmann’s children were home schooled and also attended private Christian schools, and her political career stemmed from her interest in education reform.
In 2000, Bachmann defeated a longtime moderate incumbent for a state senate seat in Minnesota. In 2006, Bachmann entered the race to represent her suburban Minneapolis congressional district. She won 52 percent of the vote, becoming the first Republican woman from Minnesota elected to the House of Representatives. She easily won reelection in 2008 and 2010.
Michele Bachmann currently serves as the Dean of the Robertson School of Government at Regent University in Virginia Beach, VA.
Bachmann’s extensive career highlights include:
• Bachmann was the first Republican woman from Minnesota elected to the U.S. House of Representatives.
• Bachmann served as a United States Congresswoman representing Minnesota’s 6th District from 2007 to 2015.
• She quickly became a national figure in the Republican Party and a founding member of the congressional Tea Party Caucus.
• In 2011, Bachmann announced her bid for the Republican presidential nomination and ran for president in 2012.
• Bachmann is a highly respected leader who is deeply committed to conservative values in government.
“It has been the highest honor to serve the American people and to uphold conservative principles on a national scale,” Bachmann stated. “I am thrilled to now direct my focus to preparing the next generation of government leaders at Regent University.”
Formerly with First Liberty Institute, after working for a law firm in private practice, Youman received her Juris Doctor from Southern Methodist University, where she was a Dean’s Scholarship Recipient. She was also a member of the Board of Advocates, where she successfully argued in off-campus mock trial competitions, and was a member of the Aggie Law Society and SMU Christian Legal Society. During law school, she clerked for the Consumer Protection Division in the Office of the Attorney General of Texas and Liberty Institute.
