When she won one of the closest House races in the nation in 2010, Ann Marie Buerkle became a heroine to fellow conservatives and tea partiers nationwide.

Two years after voting a relentless conservative line in the House, Buerkle, a Syracuse, N.Y., attorney and former nurse, was unseated by Dan Maffei, the Democrat she had previously beaten.

After months of hinting she wants to seek a rematch, Buerkle, a 62-year-old divorced mother-of-six, last week announced she was taking a new job as host of an hour-long radio talk show on Syracuse's WSYR station. The show takes to the air for the first time next Saturday morning.

As for running again, the former congresswoman insists "absolutely no decision has been made."
