Bachmann Insists Campaign Has Resources to Compete

Yesterday, former Bachmann campaign manager Ed Rollins told MSNBC Michele Bachmann lacked “the ability or the resources” to campaign seriously beyond Iowa.

Asked about that today, Bachmann pushed back. “Well, we do not agree,” she told reporters in Iowa, according to Radio Iowa. “We have sufficient resources to be able to do what we’re doing and that’s to be very competitive in this race.”

“We intend to be here [Iowa] and just this last week we were in AZ, CA, FL, SC — we’ve been all over the United States and we intend to compete and go forward,” she added.
