Bachmann becomes a citizen of Switzerland

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann has been granted citizenship in Switzerland.

Bachmann's spokeswoman Becky Rogness says the congresswoman has been eligible for dual citizenship since she married her husband of Swiss descent in 1978. Rogness tells Minnesota Public Radio that some of the couple's children wanted to exercise their eligibility for dual citizenship, so they went through the process as a family.

Bachmann represents Minnesota's 6th Congressional District and plans to seek re-election following her unsuccessful run for the Republican presidential nomination.
