Bachmann Denies Report That She is Considering a Romney Endorsement

February 1, 2012

Tea party favorite Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., on Wednesday denied a Boston Globe report that she and GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney are in talks over a possible endorsement.

"Let me be absolutely clear, there are absolutely no negotiations between me and the Romney campaign regarding any pending endorsement of Governor Romney," Bachmann said in a statement. "The Boston Globe article today is completely false and I call on The Globe to retract their article."

The Globe reported early Wednesday that aides to Romney and Bachmann were in talks as recently as last night to secure her endorsement.

 

An endorsement from Bachman could help Romney with feisty tea party voters who view him negatively as the establishment choice. Bachmann stands to benefit, too, if Romney agrees to help her pay off nearly $1 million in her campaign debt, The Globe reports.

Romney headed to Minnesota this morning for a "grassroots rally," even though the next two states to vote are Nevada and Maine. Bachmann denied the reports, saying that she will be in D.C. while Romney is in Minnesota, the Huffington Post's White House correspondent Sam Stein said in a tweet.
