Michele Bachmann (R-Mars) Bails on Donald Trump
It’s now officially an exodus: Michele Bachmann Becomes Fifth GOP Candidate To Reject Donald Trump Debate.
“We have confirmed that we are not participating,” Bachmann spokeswoman Alice Stewart told ABC News on Thursday.
Bachmann has been especially aggressive in her courting of the real estate and reality television mogul, paying several personal visits to Trump Tower over the past few months in search of an endorsement.
So, this leaves just two candidates — Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum — who plan to show up at the Dec. 27 event in Des Moines.
