"Nothing's off the table for her," said Andy Parrish, Mrs. Bachmann's chief of staff. "She's looking forward to traveling to Iowa for the fundraiser, and you know, she's looking forward over the next year to traveling and sharing the story of why we can't re-elect Barack Obama as president."
Mr. Parrish wouldn't say when Mrs. Bachmann would decide, but he said she won't be affected by the decisions of former Minnesota Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty or former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, whom Mrs. Bachmann previously has called a good 2012 prospect.
