Bachmann Denies Romney Endorsement Rumors
February 1, 2012 - 7:44 am
ORLANDO, FL — After Mitt Romney’s big win in Florida, the Boston Globe today reports that the former GOP candidate and Tea Party darling Michele Bachmann was in negotiations with the Romney camp in terms of an endorsement.
This would be good news for Mitt as he tries to coalesce the conservative base, but the report appears to be false.
Bachmann’s campaign just fired out this statement:
“Let me be absolutely clear — there are absolutely no negotiations between me and the Romney campaign regarding any pending endorsement of Governor Romney. I continue to speak with all the candidates and plan on uniting behind the presumptive nominee. The Boston Globe article today is completely false and I call on the Globe to retract their article.”
