Michele Bachmann's Campaign in Hot Water
Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann's campaign chairman Sen. Kent Sorenson of Iowa suddenly jumped on Ron Paul's bandwagon.
Rep. Bachmann is only beating Former Governor Jon Huntsman in the polls, the man who hasn't campaign whatsoever in the Hawkeye state.
The tea-party darling is furious at all of this. She is vigorously campaigning in what has become a must-win state for her. She said Sorenson went to Ron Paul's campaign because he was offered a larger sum of money. This was flatly denied by Sorenson on Fox News yesterday. Well someone's lying, and we don't have time to find out who it is because the Iowa caucus is only four days away.
"I had a conversation with Kent Sorenson and in the direct conversation that I had with him, he told me he was offered money. He was offered a lot of money by the Ron Paul campaign to go and associate with the Ron Paul campaign," she said at a tour stop in Battle. "No one else knows about that conversation other than Kent Sorenson and myself and I know what he said to me about that."
Ron Paul is tied with Mitt Romeny for the first place in the recent polls. Newt Gingrich's surge has fades away as he's down from 33% to only 14%, while Rick Santorum has surged to 16%.
Although the caucus is only few days away, given rises and falls of candidates, we may see a lot in the coming days and beyond to New Hampshire primary. In all of this, bad news for the Bachmann Campaign is that she has to win the state of Iowa to convince the Republicans, Tea-Party and especially her donors to help keep her campaign rolling.
If Mitt Romeny wins in Iowa, he'd go on the win New Hampshire decisively, but the Republican establishment die-hard conservatives would be clearly outrage at his. If Ron Paul wins Iowa, we could see a long primary battle between Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul and Mitt Romeny. If Gingrich wins the state, he would win most of other early primary states including South Carolina and Florida.
Rick Perry is not part of this equation - sad but true.
