SIOUX CITY – Michele Bachmann wants some respect, especially from Newt Gingrich.
For two days in a row the sole woman in the Republican presidential campaign has demanded that she be respected as a serious candidate for president.
She has aimed most of her anger at Gingrich, the current front-runner, who said during Thursday’s debate that Bachmann didn’t have all her facts straight in her attacks on him.
“I am not a student of his. I am a serious candidate for the presidency and I think it is important that I be treated as an equal on that stage,” Bachmann told reporters before boarding a bus for a 10-day visit of Iowa’s 99 counties.
