URBANDALE, Iowa (AP) — Republican presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann says she's not a politician but a real person.

The Minnesota congresswoman is telling Iowans at a business in Urbandale that she doesn't need to be president. She says she's running only because she understands what needs to be done to fix the nation's problems.

When Bachmann was asked Wednesday what sets her apart from other candidates, she said that it's her track record of doing what she says she's going to do after winning election.

Bachmann says she's been willing to buck her own party because her principles are more important than party labels. She says what's missing in Washington is leadership that's willing to take tough but necessary action, a quality she says she has.
