Bachmann for President?

Is Rep. Michele Bachmann (R., Minn.) planning a presidential run?

She will attend fundraiser in Iowa later this month, which will be her third visit to the state in eight months. And a source tells ABC that Bachmann is also planning to talk to GOP operatives in the state and solicit their advice.

“Nothing is off the table. The congresswoman is excited about her first trip to Iowa this year,” said Bachmann chief of staff Andy Parrish to ABC, when asked if Bachmann was mulling a presidential run.

The Bachmann office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
