DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Republican Michele Bachmann's presidential campaign fell just as quickly as it rose. Now, she's looking to Iowa — at the expense of other early voting states — to get back on track.
It's a strategy of necessity for the Minnesota congresswoman. A victory in Iowa this winter would keep her afloat in the GOP nomination fight; a loss would almost certainly end her bid.
"We know that when Michele is in Iowa, she wins," said Bachmann's Iowa campaign chairman, Kent Sorenson. "If she's here, she'll win Iowa."
