Democratic Dream: Bachmann And Palin Battling It Out For The GOP 2012 Nomination
Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is looking at the prospect of running for president in 2012. After all, Iowa is nice this time of year.
A source close to the three-term congresswoman said Bachmann will travel to Iowa this month for multiple meetings to seek advice from political forces there and party elders close to the caucus process before coming to a final decision regarding a potential presidential run. Bachmann, a native of Waterloo, Iowa, also is set to deliver a keynote speech at an Iowans for Tax Relief PAC fundraiser Jan. 21 in Des Moines, Iowa.
Bachmann’s staff cites frequent encouragement from supporters.
“Nothing is off the table,” Bachmann chief of staff Andy Parrish told ABC News when asked whether the Iowa trip signaled Bachmann’s intent to run for president. “The congresswoman is excited about her first trip to Iowa this year.”
In April, Bachmann predicted Obama would be a one-term president and Sarah Palin would be elected president in 2012.
