WASHINGTON (AP) — A day after winning a test poll of voters in Iowa, Rep. Michele Bachmann is seeking to distinguish herself from another tea party favorite and GOP presidential hopeful, Gov. Rick Perry of Texas.

Interviewed Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union," the Minnesota Republican says that she's a proven advocate for conservative causes in Washington. She says she's been on the front lines and fighting.

While she is unable to name a single piece of legislation that she's pushed through Congress, Bachmann says that she's led the fight to repeal President Barack Obama's health care legislation.

She says that on issue after issue she's been, in her words, "at the tip of the spear."

Perry announced Saturday his entry into the field of Republicans vying to challenge Obama.in 2012.
