A Bold Choice
Minnesota Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann officially enters the 2012 presidential race.
Michele Bachmann has cast herself as the "bold choice" for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination.
The Minnesota Congresswoman stood before family and friends in her birth place of Waterloo, Iowa Monday to formally announce her candidacy for president.
Bachmann initially made her intentions clear at a debate earlier this month.
Following her formal campaign kick-off in Iowa, Bachmann will shift her focus to New Hampshire and South Carolina.
