Jan 4, 2012 — Several former rivals of Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann were quick to applaud the now-suspended campaign run by the only woman to have sought the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. In ending her own bid for the White House, Bachmann did not offer a specific endorsement.

Oct 24, 2011 — When Rep. Michele Bachmann's New Hampshire presidential campaign staff quit en masse Friday, it was easy to jump to the conclusion that they were abandoning her just like so many Republican voters.Wrong, at least, her former staffers are publicly saying. It wasn't that they were dissatisfied with the candidate but her national staff.
Comments |
Oct 21, 2011 — Perhaps more than any other Republican running for president this year, Michele Bachmann has railed against taxes. She says they're too high, and that the current tax code should be repealed. She also worked for the IRS office in St. Paul, Minn., for more than four years as a prosecutor. "The first rule of war," she says, "is know your enemy."
