Listen: Bachmann targeted
0:00 | 17

The League of Conservation Voters says it will campaign against Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann in the fall election. The non-profit advocacy group has named Bachmann to its national list of so-called Dirty Dozen congressional candidates. The list is created with an online vote, where Bachmann received 60-percent of the votes. The non-profit group's Tony Massaro says Bachmann voted against energy legislation that would create clean jobs in Minnesota. A spokesman for the Bachmann campaign says it's not worried about the criticism, calling the League of Conservation Voters a fringe group.
