Political notebook: Bachmann rules out 2012 bid for presidency
ST. PAUL - A darling of conservative media will not run for president in 2012.
U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann waited until an Iowa newspaper asked before she took herself out of the race.
"Goodness, I've only been in the House for three years, so, no, I'm not considering anything like that," the Minnesota Republican told the Sioux City (Iowa) Journal.
Previously, she left the door open for a presidential campaign, saying she would run if God sent her a message.
