WASHINGTON - Minnesota congresswoman Michele Bachmann says she will not run for another term in the U.S. House.

The tea party favorite, who ran for the Republican presidential nomination last year, announced her decision on her website this morning.

Bachmann says her decision not to run again in 2014 was "not influenced by any concerns about ... being re-elected."

She also says recent inquiries into her 2012 presidential campaign did not affect her decision.

Bachmann promises to "continue to work overtime for the next 18 months in Congress defending ... Constitutional Conservative values."
