Bachmann Feels ‘Calling’ to Run in 2012

Michele Bachmann strongly hinted at a presidential run today.

Speaking about a 2012 run, Bachmann told Iowa Press that she “had this calling and tugging on my heart that this is the right thing to do.”

She also spoke about how her Iowa roots could boost her efforts in that state.

“I think that is the great gold standard to be a native Iowan. I think it’s a distinct advantage because I have that sensibility. I often tell people that everything I need to know I learned in Iowa,” Bachmann said.
