Nice catchby The Minnesota Independent’s Andy Birkey. During an interviewwith the Sioux City [Iowa] Journal published Tuesday, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) said she was not weighing a run for president — despite recentsuggestionsthat she may hold ambitions for higher office — but she did offer an endorsement of her own: Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa).
From The Minnesota Independent:
“Steve King is mentioned as a potential nominee,” Bachmann said. “I have a very high opinion of Steve King and his ability, so I would encourage him to consider any position for higher office.”
Like Bachmann, King is a very conservative Christian known for stirring controversy with his public statements. He made waves this summer when he opposed a resolution recognizing the role slaves played in building the U.S. Capitoland called hate-crimes legislation “the Pedophile Protection Act.”Our sister site, the Iowa Independent, has continuing coverageof Bachmann’s kindred spirit to the south.
