After coming in second-to-last place in the Republican Iowa caucus, Congresswoman Michele Bachman is finally calling it quits.
The writing’s been on the wall for a while, but the staunch Tea Party politician’s been trying to stay in the race and had pinned all of her hopes to Iowa. Unfortunately, only five-percent of caucus goers thought she was the best candidate for the job.
Early Wednesday, Bachman held a press conference finally conceding defeat.
“Last night, the people of Iowa spoke with a very clear voice, and so I have decided to stand aside,” Bachmann said in announcing the future of her campaign. She signaled that she has “no regrets” and is looking forward “to the next chapter in God’s plan.”
Despite dropping out of the race, Bachman has no plans of fading from the spotlight. She vowed to continue to fight President Obama’s “socialist policies” and further the Tea Party cause.
As for her failed presidential bid, Bachman told reporters, “I have no regrets.”
