U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) will seek re-election to her House seat, according to a breaking-news bulletin from the Associated Press Wednesday morning.

Bachmann and St. Michael residents will learn by Feb. 21 which congressional district they will be in for the next decade, when a panel of judges releases Minnesota's new redistricting map.

As of Wednesday, Bachmann had not filed official paperwork to run for the Sixth District seat, but neither had a DFL opponent.

The picture could become clearer Feb. 7, when all major parties in Minnesota caucus in preparation for the 2012 election.
