Bachmann drops out of presidential race

Michele Bachmann has ended her campaign for the Republican presidential nomination after a poor showing in the Iowa caucus. The Wall Street Journal reports the Minnesota Representative, who finished a disappointing sixth in Iowa, was running low on campaign funds. She had originally said on Tuesday night after the vote that she would continue. Bachmann had been expected to largely ignore the upcoming New Hampshire primaries on Jan. 10, to focus on South Carolina’s race on Jan. 21.
