Bachmann Touts Experience Running Small Business

Sunday, 14 Aug 2011 09:43 PM


WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann says her experience running a small business gives her the qualifications to tackle the nation's economic troubles.

Speaking at a GOP fundraiser in Waterloo, Iowa, Sunday evening, Bachmann says she knows about "starting a business from scratch and building it up so that we can actually offer jobs to people."

The Minnesota congresswoman is also stressing her appeal among evangelical voters, who helped her win Iowa's Republican straw poll Saturday. She says that "without social conservatives, it will be very difficult to beat Barack Obama in 2012."

She describes her tea party supporters as "a movement coming together."
