Bachmann Prepares To Kick Off Presidential Campaign

March 24, 2011

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is preparing to kick off a presidential campaign.

On Thursday, as Bachmann was touring Iowa, CNN reported that the congresswoman plans to file exploratory papers for a presidential campaign by June.

The CNN report cites an unnamed source close to Bachmann saying that though she often references "early June" as the deadline for her decision, "nothing is static," and the announcement that she will form the committee could come even earlier.

"The congresswoman is grateful for all the encouragement she's received," Bachmann spokesman Doug Sachtleben said in a statement. "She will make a decision about 2012 this summer. There is a natural timeline to these events and they will run their course."

CNN has also reported that Iowa Republican state Sen. Kent Sorenson will likely be hired to serve as Bachmann's political director for the state - and that Bachmann aides "hope to have a complete team together for Iowa by this weekend."

Bachmann has been traveling the presidential circuit lately. She's visited New Hampshire, Iowa, and South Carolina, all states that will hold crucial early presidential contests.
