Plans to announce [today] her candidacy for president from her birthplace of Waterloo, Iowa.
And, in an exclusive interview in the latest issue of Newsmax Magazine, Bachmann said that Washington is a “corrupt paradigm” of government that she’ll change as president.
“I think it is because of the corrupt paradigm that has become Washington, D.C., whereby votes continually are bought rather than representatives voting the will of their constituents. . . . That’s the voice that’s been missing at the table in Washington, D.C. -- the people's voice has been missing. The lobbyists have been here,” Bachmann explained.
