Pawlenty-Bachmann Feud Escalates in Iowa

Monday, 25 Jul 2011 06:09 PM


MANCHESTER, Iowa — Call it the Minnesota feud — Iowa style.

Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty is using a campaign appearance in Iowa to accuse his home state Republican presidential rival -- Michele Bachmann -- of having a record of mixing up her facts.

Bachmann is in Iowa, too, but is staying away from what's become an escalating war of words.

Pawlenty is responding to weekend criticism from Bachmann's campaign that the former governor supported policies President Barack Obama also backed. Pawlenty told about 100 people at an event in Davenport that Bachmann -- quote -- "has a record for saying things that are off the mark."

Bachmann hit back weeks after Pawlenty described her record in Congress as "non-existent."
