A spokesman for the Minnesota congressman, who once said God told her to run for Congress, has confirmed that Mrs Bachmann is planning a speech later this month in her native Iowa, where the first caucuses in the Republican primary will be held early in 2012.
"Nothing is off the table," her chief of staff, Andy Parrish, told ABC NewsThe New York Daily News:
Move over, Sarah Palin. There may be a new Tea Party star with eyes on the White House.......The Los Angeles Times:
Michele Bachmann, yes, Michele Bachmann is considering a presidential run................the Iowa native (Waterloo) will travel to her home state later this month to talk against the massive spending of you-know-who at a fundraiser for the Iowans for Tax Relief PAC in Des Moines.
Bachmann, now starting her third House term, has proven a media magnet like her like-minded fellow Republican conservative Sarah Palin; both are often quoted, often derisively. This fall, Bachmann was targeted by numerous prominent Democrats but proved adept at raising both many dollars and votes.For the sake of argument, let's assume that she does enter the race. Lets also assume that Romney, Huckabee, Palin, and Gingrich all do as well:
Who does her candidacy hurt the most?
What does this do to the Iowa Caucus? She is a native of that state.
Who becomes the Tea Party favorite?
