Bachmann confirms presidential candidacy - CNN.com
U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann ended any doubt that she is running for president, saying during Monday night's CNN GOP presidential debate that she has filed for the 2012 race.
"I filed ... my paperwork to seek the office of the presidency of the United States today, and I'll very soon be making my formal announcement," Bachmann said shortly after the start of the debate in Manchester, New Hampshire.
Bachmann, of Minnesota, became the seventh Republican -- and the only woman -- to confirm her candidacy. She was the only one of the debate's seven participants who hadn't formally declared before the start of Monday's event at Saint Anselm College's Sullivan Arena.
