Bachmann campaign ad hits the airwaves

Washington (CNN) - Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann launched her first 2012 election television ad highlighting her Iowa roots and fiscal conservatism.

"As a descendent of generations of Iowans, I was born and raised in Waterloo, as a mom of five, a foster parents, and a former tax lawyer and now a small business job creator, I know we can't keep spending money that we don't have," Bachmann says in the ad. "That's why I fought against the wasteful bailout, against the stimulus. I will not vote to increase the debt ceiling."
