ABC News' Russell Goldman reports:
Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., will announce her plans for a presidential campaign next month in Waterloo, Iowa, the town where she was born, she told reporters tonight.
Bachmann was scheduled to speak at a GOP dinner tonight in Des Moines, but chose to remain in Washington to vote on anti-terror legislation. She spoke to the reporters gathered in Iowa via speaker phone and delivered a video message to the dinner attendants.
Reportedly, Bachmann said she could still decide not to run in 2012 but was confident about making a go of it. For weeks, Bachmann, a tea party favorite, has said she would announce her decision in June. She did not indicate on what day next month she will visit Waterloo.
