Reports: Bachmann quitting GOP campaign, Perry reassessing
Republican presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann is ending her presidential campaign after a dismal showing in the Iowa caucuses Tuesday, while Texas Gov. Rick Perry has returned to Texas to reassess his campaign after finishing fifth, one spot ahead of Bachmann. Bachmann's campaign manager, Keith Nahigian, tells The Associated Press the Minnesota congresswoman plans a news conference in Iowa today to make the announcement. Bachmann, 55, told a small group of supporters Tuesday night that she was staying in the presidential race—despite her sixth-place finish—as the only true conservative who can defeat President Barack Obama. But her campaign is known to be low on money. With a squeaker of an Iowa victory in hand, Mitt Romney heads into the New Hampshire primary insisting that staying power sets him apart from runners-up Rick Santorum and Ron Paul, and the rest of the GOP presidential field.
Today's poll question: If Rick Perry ends his run for the GOP presidential nomination, whom would you like to see Gov. Bobby Jindal endorse?
