Bachmann Files Paperwork To Enter GOP Primary


Michele Bachmann said she would run for President.While much was discussed during the recent Republican primary debate, the biggest news story to emerge was the announcement by Representative Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) that on Monday she had filed the necessary papers to enter the GOP race.

Fox News reports that during the debate, which featured six other GOP hopefuls, Bachmann said that she filed the paperwork to enter the primary race and that she would make a formal announcement in the near future.

“Our country needs a leader who understands the hardships that people across America have been facing over the past few years, and who will do what it takes to renew the American dream. We must become a strong and proud America again, and I see clearly a better path to a brighter future,” the Congresswoman said in a statement.

Bachmann is embraced in many sectors because of her willingness to speak her mind and refusal to back down on a range of topics that many other candidates might shy away from.

NPR reports that Bachmann did more than just announce her candidacy during the debate in New Hampshire. She was heavily critical of President Barack Obama, particularly his handling of the situation in Libya.
