MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann says she'll seek a fourth term in the U.S. House following her failed presidential bid.

Bachmann declared her plans in an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday. The Republican congresswoman had been mum on her plans since folding her presidential campaign after a poor showing in the Iowa caucuses earlier this month.

Bachmann says she's looking forward to "coming back and bringing a strong powerful voice" to Washington.
