Bachmann Drops Out

Following a sixth place in the Iowa Caucus, Michele Bachmann decides to end her presidential campaign. The Minnesota congresswoman picked up 6,073 votes Tuesday night, only 5% of the total. This is a hard fall for the Ames Straw Poll winner and Iowa native.

Bachmann garnered 4,823 votes in the Straw Poll, but with 106,000 more people participating in the process, she could only increase that vote total by 1,250. Bachmann’s momentum quickly stalled after Rick Perry entered the race. A 99-county tour in the final weeks was a last ditch effort to revive her campaign, but it was more of a photo op than an actual chance to listen to the concerns of Iowans across the state. The tour was also hampered by consistently running behind schedule.
