Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) said her mother wanted her to become a secretary.
In a new ad posted to Bachmann’s presidential campaign website, the House lawmaker said, “My mother told me I should become a secretary because she saw that was a secure job.”
The ad focuses on Bachmann’s roots in Iowa, showing old photos of Bachmann and her family. Bachmann won the Ames Straw Poll earlier this month.
