Bachmann files papers to enter US White House race
MANCHESTER, N.H., June 13 (Reuters) – U.S. Representative Michelle Bachmann said on Monday she has filed the paperwork to formally enter the race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination.
You guys misspelled Michele Bachmann’s first name in this story, and in some photo captions I saw, too. It’s Michele, not Michelle!
