  14. ^ Lien, Dennis (February 22, 2012). "Bachmann sidesteps McCollum to stay in new 6th District". Pioneer Press. MediaNews Group, Inc. Retrieved 2012. The redistricting, done every 10 years to reflect population shifts, had to cut more than 96,000 residents out of Bachmann's growing 6th District and add more than 48,000 to McCollum's shrinking 4th District. It did that in two ways. It lopped off the far ends of the 6th District -- western Stearns County and a portion of Washington County directly east of St. Paul -- and added a piece of Carver County in the western suburbs. And it dropped the southern portion of the 4th District, but pushed the eastern border all the way to Wisconsin. That put Bachmann's home in McCollum's district. McCollum is a six-term incumbent and Minnesota's only other female U.S. representative. But because members of Congress don't have to live in the district they represent, Bachmann had an alternative to facing McCollum, and she took it.
