Late Burn for Bachmann

Presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann was surprised Wednesday to learn that her campaign chairman is abandoning her camp – for the competition!

Kent Sorenson, Iowa State Senator and former campaign chairman for Bachmann, has officially endorsed Ron Paul just six days before the Iowa caucus.

Sorenson even attended a Bachmann event in Indianola, just hours before announcing his new endorsement at a Paul rally.

Claiming to be at a turning point in the campaign process, Sorenson says “I thought it was my duty to come to his aid, just like he came to my aid during my Senate race”.  He further encouraged the crowd, saying “We’re going to take Ron Paul all the way to the White House.”

Sorenson was elected in 2010 to the state Senate due in part to support from Ron Paul and his heavy Iowa following. 

He declined to discuss the reasons for leaving the Bachmann campaign, focusing instead on the strengths of the Paul campaign.  Sorenson claims that he had been thinking about supporting Paul for a couple days, but hadn’t officially made his decision until Wednesday night.

He says that there is a clear top-tier race between Ron Paul and Mitt Romney, and that the Republican establishment is going to rise up against Paul. 

Sorenson says that we can vote for a frugal socialist (Romney), or someone who will support the Founding Fathers’ beliefs of what this country should be.

An angry Bachmann claims that “Sorenson personally told me he was offered a large sum of money to go to work for the Paul campaign.”  She did not take questions, but continued to push her agenda for the January 3 Iowa caucus.
