MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) Outgoing Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is not ruling out a possible return to public office.

Bachmann gave her first interview Thursday night since her surprise announcement last week that she won't seek re-election.

The tea party favorite told Sean Hannity of Fox News Channel that she might run again for public office, but gave no specifics. Bachmann says she's ``done everything possible'' that she can on the inside. But she noted she has another year-and-a-half in Congress and ``people won't see me go away.'' 

Bachmann was a Republican presidential candidate but dropped out after finishing sixth in the Iowa caucuses last year.
