Michele Bachmann Ends Presidential Campaign

(FoxNews.com) - Michele Bachmann has suspended her 2012 presidential campaign Wednesday after finishing at the bottom of competitors in the Republican caucuses in Iowa.

"Last night the people of Iowa spoke with a very clear voice. And so I have decided to stand aside," the Minnesota congresswoman said.. "I believe that if we are going to repeal Obamacare, turn our country around and take back our country, we must do so united. And I believe that we must rally around the person that our country and our party and our people select to be that standard-bearer."

The news was not unexpected. Bachmann had canceled a campaign trip to South Carolina despite telling supporters on Tuesday night that she would soldier on.
