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 said 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.
