Bachmann Launches 99-County Iowa Bus Tour

Borrowing a page from rival Rick Santorum’s playbook, Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann said on Monday she will visit all of Iowa’s 99 counties as part of a “barnstorming bus tour” in advance of the Jan. 3 presidential nominating caucuses.

The Minnesota congresswoman is competing with Santorum, a former senator from Pennsylvania, for conservative evangelical voters, who make up roughly 60 percent of caucus-goers on the Republican side.

“Michele Bachmann is determined to win the Iowa caucuses the same way she won the Republican Party of Iowa Straw Poll in August. She’s going to work harder than any other candidate in the race,” national campaign manager Keith Nahigian said. “Visiting counties over the course of 10 days will reflect her energy, enthusiasm, and extraordinary work ethic as well as her commitment to representing the concerns of Iowa families who want a president that will put them first."


Santorum has made visiting all of Iowa’s counties a central theme in his campaign. However, both candidates are in the single digits in recent polls in the state. Slugging it out at the top of the heap are former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas.
