As noted at US news sites that day, Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann announced her withdrawal from the 2012 presidential election campaign via a press conference.
“Last night the people of Iowa spoke with a very clear voice and so I have decided to stand aside.” Bachmann, 55, said on her speech, in front of her supporters in West Des Moines, Iowa.
“I believe that if we are going to repeal Obamacare, turn our country around and take back our country, we must do so united.” Bachmann added, who also canceled her campaign trip to South Carolina.
And I believe that we must rally around the person that our country and our party and our people select to be that standard-bearer.” Bachmann noted, mentioning ‘Obamacare‘ multiple times on her speech.
“I will continue fighting to defeat the president’s agenda of socialism.” Bachmann stressed out, but without mentioning any GOP presidential candidate that she would support or endorse.
Apparently, Bachmann‘s withdrawal from the 2012 GOP presidential nomination campaign came after she landed sixth on the 2012 Iowa caucus official final result, garnering only 6% of all the votes.
As reported earlier, Mitt Romney won the 2012 Iowa caucus, leading the polls with only 8 votes over Rick Santorum, who had 30,007 votes; followed by U.S. Representative Ron Paul with 26,186 votes.
