The former chief of staff for Rep. MIchele Bachmann is set to testify that her presidential campaign paid a Kansas politico to work her, in violation of campaign ethics.
Rep. Michele Bachmann, Minnesota Republican, is the keynote speaker at a GOP event in the early presidential caucus state of Iowa later this month, and a spokesman said Wednesday that Mrs. Bachmann, a tea party favorite, has "not ruled out" a bid for president.
U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota is the keynote speaker at a GOP event in the early presidential caucus state of Iowa later this month, and a spokesman said Wednesday that the tea party favorite has "not ruled out" a bid for president.
But he said she won't be affected by the decisions of fellow Minnesota Republican Tim Pawlenty, the state's former two-term governor, or former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, whom Mrs. Bachmann has previously called a good 2012 prospect.
He said she made several trips to Iowa in 2010, and while he wouldn't reveal specific travel plans in the coming months, he said she could end up in other early caucus or primary states.
