Iowa state campaign finance reports indicate that Michele Bachmann’s PAC (M.I.C.H.E.L.E. PAC) has given over $31,000 to candidates in Iowa during the last election.
In contrast, Sarah Palin’s PAC gave barely half that total.
Conservatives will have hard time finding a more principled, hard working and intelligent candidate than Mrs. Bachmann. Her fundraising alone makes her a conservative power to contend with.
