A certain high-profile congresswoman certainly doesn’t mind the presidential speculation:
Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann says the reactions she received in her Friday meetings with Iowa Republican leaders and conservative activists in the leadoff presidential caucus state have encouraged her to explore running for president.
“I am very encouraged by what I heard and the level of support that I saw today,” Bachmann told The Des Moines Register after a gauntlet of meetings in Des Moines.
Will she run? Call me crazy, but presidential campaign buzz seems like a good way to build up a network of national donors for a Senate race.
