She hasn’t even officially announced her presidential campaign yet, but already Rep. Michele Bachmann is virtually tied with Mitt Romney in the 2012 Iowa caucus polling season.
WASHINGTON — Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) said Friday that the 2012 elections was not the time for Republicans to nominate someone with a wavering record on abortion, alluding to one of her competitors in the race.
Speaking via Skype to the National Right to Life’s Convention in Jacksonville, Fla., the Minnesota Republican did not mention former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney by name. But the target of her dig was clear.
The 2012 race, she said, was “not the time for Republicans to put up a candidate who is weak on this issue and has a history of flip-flopping on this issue.”
