After months of infighting and a general fatigue within the Republican Party, Rep. Michele Bachmann said on Friday that she will back the eventual nominee in November, but not until a candidate is nominated.
Speaking on NBC’s Today, the former presidential candidate said the GOP needs to unify behind one candidate in the coming months—striking a different tone from Rick Santorum on Thursday. Her biggest goal is to beat President Obama in the fall and defeat his health care policy.
“I am the only presidential candidate who hasn’t endorsed yet,” she said. “But I will get behind whoever the people choose.”
She contended that the race will not come to a brokered convention, but stopped short of recognizing the inevitability of Mitt Romney’s nomination.
“I think there’s going to be a natural progression,” Bachmann said. “I feel that there’s kind of a fatigue among our party. There’s a fatigue with the inner-party fighting, and people tell me they want to come to a resolution. … But we’ve got to unify.”
