Michele Bachmann Kicks Off Presidential Campaign

June 27, 2011
Bachmann's priority, though, was driving deeper into the ground her stake in being a native Iowan - a fact she hopes will land her a victory in the coveted early caucus state. Naming the schools she attended in Waterloo growing up and her childhood house - "both a short distance from where we stand today, where those Iowan roots were firmly planted," she said - Bachmann argued that she can relate to the state's voters because "I know what it means to be from Iowa; what we value and what's important." "Those are the values that helped make Iowa the breadbasket of the world and those are the values, the best of all of us, that we must recapture to secure the promise of the future," she continued. "I often say that everything I needed to know I learned in Iowa." Though Bachmann announced her presidential intentions last week at a debate in New Hampshire, her kickoff event in Iowa was a long time coming: For months, she had said that she would make a decision in June in order to be part of the Ames Straw Poll in August. She delivered her speech Monday in front of the Snowden House, which, though she usually insists that she not be known as a "woman candidate," she called "fitting" since it once served as home to the Waterloo Women's Club.
