Bachmann Welcomes Paul delegatesSubmitted by LibertyChat on Tue, 08/28/2012 - 08:45
U.S Rep. Michele Bachmann says the Ron Paul delegates from Minnesota should “take a victory lap.”
Even though their candidate will not be the Republican nominee, the Republican National Convention in nearby Tampa this week will adopt a platform that embraces their fundamental principles, she told the Minnesota delegation during a breakfast meeting Monday at their hotel here.
“On serious values, you have succeeded more wildly than you can even imagine,” Bachmann told the delegation.
Bachmann supports presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney for president, while 32 of Minnesota’s 40 delegates back Paul, the libertarian Texas congressman.
But the 6th District congresswoman and former presidential candidate is the chairwoman of the House Tea Party Caucus, and she said the tea party and the Paul movement share the same three basic principles.
