Bachmann: Tea Party will ‘come home’ to my campaign

(CNN) – In the scramble for Herman Cain supporters after his exit from the 2012 Republican presidential campaign, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann said Sunday that she has already gotten a boost.

“One thing we’ve seen a lot of is Herman Cain supporters have been calling our office and they’ve been coming over to our side,” Bachmann told CNN’s “State of the Union with Candy Crowley” program, adding “part of that is because people see that I’m the tea party candidate in the race and they saw Herman Cain as an outsider and I think they see that my voice would be the one that would be most reflective of his.”

Cain’s attorney: Presidential candidates ‘better be careful’

(CNN) – GOP presidential contender Herman Cain’s attorney, Lin Wood, had a warning for presidential candidates Thursday after the candidate revealed more details about the relationship he had with Ginger White.

“This idea that one person can go out and make an accusation that turns a friendship into an alleged sexual affair, the candidates better be careful,” Wood said during an interview on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight.” “That’s a slippery slope that I don’t believe this country wants to go down.”

Bachmann on flip-floppers

(CNN) – Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann didn't directly comment on the controversy surrounding GOP rival Herman Cain and his presidential prospects Tuesday, but aimed an arsenal of criticism at the current frontrunners for the 2012 presidential nomination.

Trumpeting her credentials as a “consistent conservative” on CNN’s “The Situation Room,” Bachmann said both former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich “have a lot to answer for the voters on being on both sides of the issues.”
