Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann visited Iowa Friday night to speak to a prominent anti-tax group and her visit increased speculation about a potential 2012 president run for the congresswoman. An Iowa native, Bachmann spoke about the need to cut back congressional spending and encouraged Iowans to "repeal a President Obama in 2012 and a very liberal Senate in 2012 and instead put in place a bold, strong, Constitutionally conservative for president who understands the times and knows what to do."
