pretty interesting, Cain's not doing too bad, beating out the RonulanWATERLOO — Congresswoman Michele Bachmann announced her candidacy for President on Monday, June 27 in her hometown of Waterloo, Iowa.
Just hours before, the first Iowa Poll of the campaign was released by the prestigious Des Moines Register, and the news couldn’t have been better for the Bachmann campaign.
The Iowa Poll had Bachmann and presumptive front-runner Mitt Romney in a virtual dead-heat among likely Republican caucus-goers. Romney was at 23 percent, Bachmann at 22, Herman Cain at 10, Ron Paul at 7, and Tim Pawlenty at 6. It was a major boost for Bachmann going into the Iowa Straw Poll set for Aug. 13 in Ames.
