This just in: Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., will NOT be not be appearing on ABC's “Dancing with the Stars.”

Responding to “recent rumors,” the former Republican presidential candidate on Wednesday said it is untrue she has been tapped by the television show as a participant next season. Bachmann says her attention remains focused on “creating jobs and higher-paying jobs in her congressional district,” according to a news release.

“Serious issues face our nation. I’m continuing to push for cutting wasteful government spending, a successful conclusion to the decades-long St. Croix River Crossing Project in my district, and repealing the government takeover of health care,” her statement said.

 

However, in the interest of “full disclosure,” the congresswoman offered: “I did win a polka dancing competition when I was in the tenth grade at my alma mater, Anoka High School in Anoka, Minn.”

“But despite my tenth grade polka success and my lifelong love of ballroom dancing, the recent rumors are false. I will not be joining ‘Dancing with the Stars',” she said.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that one-time GOP presidential contender Herman Cain also won't appear on the ABC series.

DWTS's season 14 premieres on March 19, and the new cast will be announced on Feb. 28.
