GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann wants to raise $240 thousand dollars over the next 24 hours. In a fundraising e-mail, Bachmann is raising the funds off of a call to make President Obama a "one-term president."
"Americans around the country are struggling to make ends meet, and looking towards our government to provide answers and a path towards recovery. It is clear these answers and solutions will not be provided under the Obama Administration. Barack Obama's failed policies have led our nation down a path of economic downfall and despair. We cannot afford another four years of an Obama White House."
Bachmann, who is mulling a run for the White House in 2012, is aiming to highlight her fundraising prowess one day before she delivers a major speech in Iowa. Bachmann has said that she intends to announce her intentions in June but she hinted at a run during a video message that accompanied her fundraising e-mail.
"As many of you know, my family and I are prayerfully considering what the next eighteen months or so may bring," Bachmann said on the video.
Bachmann has visited several key presidential states. She's been to Iowa, South Carolina and New Hampshire over the past four months.
Bachmann's de facto candidacy has inspired me to write a song that listeners of Minnesota Public Radio might enjoy: "REPUBLICAN WOMEN." Enjoy it here: http://www.soundclick.com/player/single_player.cfm?songid=10677764&q=lo&newref=1
