In a new web ad, Rep. Michele Bachmann accuses GOP presidential hopefuls Mitt Romney and Herman Cain of supporting legalized abortion. She goes after Ron Paul for sympathizing with Iran's desire for a nuclear weapons program. She rips Rick Perry for backing in-state tuition for dependents of illegal immigrants, and highlights his debate stumble. She also takes Newt Gingrich to task for siding with Democrats on the issue of global warming.
Bachmann maintains she is the only true "constitutional conservative'" in the race and is promising that with her campaign there will be "no surprises." Bachmann is campaigning in Iowa this week.
