Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann has agreed to three debates with her DFL opponent Jim Graves on the week before the Nov. 6 election, the St. Cloud Times reports. However, the Graves campaign is pushing the three-term Congresswoman to have more than just three debates. “It frustrates me that Bachmann was willing to give 15 debates during her presidential campaign," Jim Graves said. The first public debate is set for Oct. 30 in St. Cloud.
Meanwhile, if Bachmann wins her fourth term representing Minnesota's Sixth Congressional District, a civil rights group is working to collect enough signatures to remove her from the House Permanent Select Intelligence Committee, the Times reports.
Last week, Bachmann announced she hauled in $4.5 million in the quarter that ended Sept. 30 – and it could prove to be the biggest total of anyone in Congress. Graves plans to announce his total on Monday.
