Bachmann: I Can Still Win

Yesterday her Iowa campaign chair quit to join Ron Paul’s camp, and today Michele Bachmann's political director Wes Enos stepped down. Still, Bachmann is brushing off reports of her campaign’s imminent collapse. “Our campaign organization is very strong,” she said in Des Moines today, after appearing with her new chairman. Bachmann claimed that former Iowa campaign chairman and state legislator Kent Sorenson flipped to Paul simply because he was offered “a lot of money.” Still, the Bachmann team hasn’t had a good week. A pro-Bachmann super PAC just switched allegiances to Mitt Romney, and a South Carolina endorsement that her campaign bragged about turned out to be a progressive Democrat who said Bachmann’s nomination would ensure an Obama win.
