Could Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) be considering a title change? According to ABC News, the Tea Party favorite is considering a run for "Mrs. President."
ABC News reports:
ABC News has learned that Bachmann, R-Minn., also is seriously weighing whether to seek the Republican nomination for president in 2012.
A source close to the three-term congresswoman said Bachmann will travel to Iowa this month for multiple meetings to seek advice from political forces there and party elders close to the caucus process before coming to a final decision regarding a potential presidential run. Bachmann, a native of Waterloo, Iowa, also is set to deliver a keynote speech at an Iowans for Tax Relief PAC fundraiser Jan. 21 in Des Moines, Iowa.
According to ABC, this will be Bachmann's third trip to Iowa in the last eight months -- trips that could pay dividends when the early Iowa caucuses roll around.
And Bachmann's staff isn't going out of its way to shoot down the rumors.
"Nothing is off the table," Bachmann chief of staff Andy Parrish told ABC News when asked whether the Iowa trip signaled Bachmann's intent to run for president. "The congresswoman is excited about her first trip to Iowa this year."
