Evangelist a big influence on Bachmannby Cathy Wurzer, Minnesota Public Radio
A profile in the New Yorker magazine of Republican presidential candidate and 6th District Rep. Michelle Bachmann explores some of the key things she's read or saw which shaped her political philosophy.
Ryan Lizza wrote the piece and he talked about it on Fresh Air with Terry Gross. Lizza said in this excerpt that Bachmann has credited a series of films by evangelist and theologian Francis Schaeffer with having a profound influence on her.
