Michele Bachmann's Presidential Ambitions Take Her to New Hampshire

Bachmann dot House dot gov(NASHUA, N.H.) -- Rep. Michele Bachmann, the leader of the House Tea Party caucus and a favorite of conservatives, is wading deeper into presidential waters this weekend with a multi-stop trip to the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire.

Bachmann’s main event in the Granite State will be a Saturday speech at a fundraising brunch organized by the New Hampshire Republican State Committee.

A source close to Bachmann said the Minnesota Republican “will be talking about how beating Obama starts with defunding ObamaCare and the need for a constitutional conservative to be the Republican nominee.”

Whether Bachmann wants a shot at becoming that nominee remains an open question, but she’s certainly not shying away from the speculation nor is she shunning all the media attention. Not only will C-SPAN cameras be present for her speech in Nashua but Bachmann announced on Friday that she would be streaming it live on her Facebook page. (She invited supporters to tune in at about 11:25 a.m. ET)

Earlier this week, Bachmann said she would decide “by early summer” whether to pursue the GOP nomination. “We need a nominee who really understands the times that we live in,” Bachmann said on CNN on Tuesday.

All signs point to Bachmann running. One of her closest advisers told ABC News on Friday, “I’d be surprised if she didn’t run.”
