Michele Bachmann 2012? Congresswoman to Form Presidential

Tea Party darling Michele Bachmann will form a presidential exploratory
committee in early June, according to a published report.
Sources told CNN the move could come even sooner, allowing her to participate
in early Republican presidential debates in New Hampshire, South Carolina and
California.
“She’s been telling everyone early summer,” one of the sources told CNN’s
website. “If [debate sponspors] come to us and say, ‘To be in our debates, you
have to have an exploratory committee,’ then we’ll say, ‘Okay, fine … I’ll go
file the forms.’”
The decision to form the committee is an important step in any candidate’s
bid for the Oval Office because
it’s a significant fund-raising tool that generally signals an upcoming run.
