From victory in the Iowa straw poll to lesser rival in the race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, Michele Bachmann may be down but don’t count her out.
The Minnesota Representative is right on track on her “Path to Victory” that began with her win in Iowa, Team Bachmann Campaign Manager Keith Nahigian says in a video outlining the campaign strategy.
From Iowa, the campaign’s path to the nomination winds through New Hampshire and South Carolina, the crucial early states in the presidential primary races.
A Tea Party conservative, Bachmann has seen her support sliding since Texas Governor Rick Perry (who also has Tea Party support) entered the Republican race and shot to the top of the polls.
On average, Bachmann has 7.5 percent support compared with 27.7 percent for Perry, the current front-runner in the Republican field, according to recent polls.
