Michele Bachmann to Announce in Waterloo, Iowa

May 26, 2011 10:44pm

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.
