Bachmann Quits Campaign... Perry On Deck

by: Oreo

Wed Jan 04, 2012 at 09:47:02 AM EST

Sources close to Michelle Bachmann say she will officially end her campaign to be the Republican nominee for President today at an 11am press conference. You can watch it live on CSPAN. The Minnesota Congresswoman finished with only 5% of the vote in last night's Iowa caucus. Bachmann was hoping for a miracle but I guess God was too busy trying to figure out how he could possibly help Tim Tebow beat the Steelers.

The question now is what will she do next? Does she run for a 4th term for her House seat? She has until May to join the race. According to GovTrack.us she was barely in DC for House votes during her run for President. Maybe she's had enough of being a part of the worst Congress in history?

Another option for Bachmann would be to pull a Palin and milk her notoriety. She could work for Fox News and make millions selling books and doing speeches. I'd put my money (and my hopes) on this.

Rick Perry decided to cancel his plans in South Carolina and is "reassessing" his campaign. He's all but done and it's only a matter of time before he ends his campaign.

Perry and Bachmann combined for just over 18,000 votes last night but they have very committed supporters. It will be interesting to see who the former candidates will back. I can't imagine that either would side with Romney.

Bachmann has been removed from our 2012 GOP Superdelegate List. We'll remove Perry and his two delegates when he ends his campaign.

UPDATE: While Bachmann is out Perry is back in. According to CNN he will campaign in South Carolina.

Confirmed by a Rick Perry tweet with an interesting picture:



@GovernorPerry: And the next leg of the marathon is the Palmetto State...Here we come South Carolina!!!
