Bachmann hits presidential campaign trail with Daniel Island stop

DANIEL ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - A big blue bus rolled into Daniel Island carrying newly named GOP presidential candidate Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann.  Bachmann announced her campaign for the presidency Monday and on Wednesday she hit the campaign trail, making South Carolina one of her first stops.

Like many other presidential hopefuls, Bachmann took pictures, kissed babies, introduced her husband and threw a few jabs at the current commander in chief.

"Barrack Obama must be a one-term president," Bachmann said.

An outward supporter of the tea party movement, Bachmann says she is going to break the stereotype.

"Liberals want you to think the tea party movement is this right-winged, fringeless, toothless, coming down from the mountains wearing red white and blue," Bachmann said.

She also discussed several national topics and one that hits home with South Carolinians.

"I'm against the NLRB lawsuit against Boeing," Bachmann said. "I believe in right to work states."

Supporters in the crowd gave a thumbs up to the Minnesota congresswoman and Iowa native.

"She speaks with energy and conviction and passion," said fair tax supporter John Steinberger. "I'm also impressed that she didn't use notes."

After many handshakes, Bachmann finished up her South Carolina tour with stops in Lexington, Greenville, and Rock Hill.
