Bachmann Makes Romney Endorsement Official

She says onetime foe "will preserve the American dream of prosperity and liberty."

May 3, 2012

Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., on Thursday officially endorsed Mitt Romney for president, issuing a statement in which she called her onetime bitter rival "a man who will preserve the American dream of prosperity and liberty."

News of Bachmann's endorsement leaked on Wednesday evening shortly after another Romney foe, Newt Gingrich, officially pulled out of the race. Like Gingrich, Bachmann--an ardent favorite of tea party actvists who aimed plenty of barbs at Romney--couched her backing more in terms of disdain for President Obama than in admiration for the presumptive GOP nominee.

"This is the last chance we have to keep America from going 'forward,' over the cliff, as Governor Romney said, and restore the values of prosperity and freedom," she said.

 

The Democratic National Committee responded by announcing the release of a video accusing Bachmann, Romney, and Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell of "turning back the clock on women's health." Both Bachmann and McDonnell were campaigning in Virginia with Romney on Thursday.

"How did Mitt Romney buy the endorsement of tea party leader and anti-choice crusader Michele Bachmann?" the DNC said in an accompanying statement. "By selling out America’s women to the extreme GOP base that wants to defund Planned Parenthood, restrict women’s access to preventive health care, and turn back the clock on women’s health."
