Bachmann Campaign: Pawlenty Was Once Similar to Obama

July 24, 2011

Michele Bachmann's presidential campaign had tough words for former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty on Sunday night, following comments from Pawlenty's campaign that he was very similar to Bachmann.

"Governor Pawlenty would have us believe that there is 'very little difference' between his positions and those of Michele Bachmann," Bachmann spokeswoman Alice Stewart said in a statement.

 

"But in fact, there is very little difference between Governor Pawlenty's past positions and Barack Obama's positions on several critical issues facing Americans. On issues such as unconstitutional healthcare mandates, climate change regulations, and Wall Street bailouts, there's very little daylight, indeed, between Governor Pawlenty's record and the Obama administration's policies."

The Bachmann campaign's comments come after days of tough words for her from Pawlenty.

Pawlenty called Bachmann's record in Congress "nonexistant" and suggested she was unfit for office after reports surfaced that the Minnesota congresswoman suffers from severe migraines.
