(Video) Bachmann Says She Is "Working Behind The Scenes" To Unite The GOP

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) declined to officially endorse presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney but said she is “working behind the scenes” to unite the Republican Party.
“I have said all along that I will be backing our party’s nominee,” Bachmann said Thursday on CNN’s "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer." “What I am doing is working behind the scenes bringing together all factions of our party.”
Bachmann, a Tea Party favorite, mounted her own bid for the Republican nomination, but she withdrew after a poor showing in the Iowa caucuses.
Bachmann was a frequent critic of Romney on the trail, but her endorsement could help shore up support for Romney among Tea Party conservatives, a group that has yet to rally to Romney’s candidacy.
