In GOP dramedy news, Bachmann's campaign co-chairman jumps ship and join Ron Paul. Kent Sorenson explained why he went from one sinking ship to another one.
“The decision I am making today is one of the most difficult I have made in my life. But given what’s at stake for our country, I have decided I must take this action,” Sorenson said in a statement. “Today, I am switching my support from Michele Bachmann to Ron Paul for the 2012 Iowa Caucuses and the presidency of the United States.”I guess Michele will be dropping out soon.
Sorenson, a state senator from Indianola, announced the surprise endorsement from the stage of a Paul event at the the Iowa State Fairgrounds.
The turnabout is a major surprise with just six days remaining before Iowa’s first-in-the-nation caucuses.
