Michele Bachmann, the former Minnesota congresswoman and Republican presidential candidate, is reportedly considering running for Senate for the seat former Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) left following numerous women coming forward about his groping.
Earlier this year, Bachmann said she is considering a run, but it appears “God” has other plans for her.
A billboard in St. Paul, Minnesota, has appeared recently to try and dissuade Bachmann from running. The billboard simply says “Michele Bachmann, NO.” The message is from “God” and the billboard depicts a large cartoon of a bearded man.
The billboard will likely be seen by quite a few people, as the Super Bowl is being held in U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday—just a few miles away from it.
The billboard appears to be in reference to Bachmann telling televangelist Jim Bakker that she has been praying in an effort to decide whether to run for Franken’s seat, TwinCities.com reports. Lt. Gov. Tina Smith was appointed to serve the remainder of Franken’s term and intends to run for the seat in November.
Bachmann ran for president in 2012 and has made a number of inflammatory remarks that may have been the basis for the crowdfunding project that led to the billboard. The crowdfunding campaign raised just over the $7,000 it needed to construct the billboard.
Last year the former congresswoman said she believed President Donald Trump won the 2016 election because God “answered the prayers of believers” to stop transgender people from being able to access bathrooms that match their gender identity.
