Rep. Michele Bachmann has voted 54 percent of the time since announcing her presidential bid June 13 — missing 150 votes.

Jason Roe, a Republican consultant who is supporting Michigan state Sen. Mike Kowall in his primary bid against McCotter, said it wasn't the missed votes that will hurt McCotter because his participation was in line with average Members'. "Thad's problem is it created an opening" for Kowall to enter the race, Roe said.
