Bachmann vows to stay in GOP race

December 30, 2011


— Vowing to press ahead through the Iowa caucuses, Republican Michele Bachmann dismissed the notion Thursday that her presidential campaign was in disarray — even as she lost another staff member.

Her comments came a day after a key supporter fled her campaign and she had to fend off other calls to leave the race for the GOP nomination. On Thursday, Wes Enos said he was leaving his job as Bachmann’s political director.

Despite all that, the Minnesota congresswoman called her campaign organization “strong” and said her headquarters had received 150 calls of support after her Iowa campaign chairman, state Sen. Kent Sorenson, resigned and switched his allegiance to rival Ron Paul on Wednesday.

A politician vowing to stay in the race is like an NFL owner publicly showing confidence in the coach. It means you're one loss from buh-bye.

I was very saddened when Herman Cain dropped out of the race, so this is very good news. I wish every last one of them would stay til the end. The entertainment value is priceless.
