While the news is now full of reports that presidential candidate Michele Bachmann suffers debilitating migraine headaches, she insists they don’t interfere with her work now and wouldn’t do so if she was president either, Politico reports.

In a statement Tuesday, Bachmann acknowledged that she suffers from migraines and takes medication to treat them, but downplayed their significance with respect to her work.

“Let me be abundantly clear,” she stated: “my ability to function effectively has never been impeded by migraines, and [they] will not affect my ability to serve as commander in chief.

“Since entering the campaign, I have maintained a full schedule between my duties as a congresswoman and as a presidential candidate traveling across the nation to meet with voters in the key, early primary and caucus states of Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina.”
