ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann has rushed out a television ad in hopes of capitalizing on the latest U.S. House vote to undo President Barack Obama's health care law.

The Republican critic of the Affordable Care Act _ dubbed Obamacare by foes _ was to begin airing the ad Thursday night in Twin Cities market. She put about $85,000 into the TV spot.

It shows her speaking directly into the camera spreading what she calls ``great news'' about the vote. Bachmann sponsored the measure the House adopted, which has virtually no chance of winning Senate approval.

Bachmann narrowly won a fourth term over Democrat Jim Graves, who is running again in 2014. Bachmann has yet to say equivocally she will run again, but is raising money to facilitate a possible campaign.
