HOT: Bachmann's Campaign Chair Defects To Ron Paul

Alexander Burns at Politico reports:
In a shock announcement Wednesday night, Iowa state senator and onetime Michele Bachmann campaign leader Kent Sorenson declared that he is now supporting Ron Paul for president.

Sorenson made the announcement at a Paul rally with veterans here in Des Moines, telling the crowd: "I believe we're at a turning point in this campaign."

Calling the decision to abandon Bachmann a painful one, Sorenson said he felt obligated to join Paul as the "Republican establishment" tries to undermine his campaign.

"I thought it was my duty to come to his aid, just like he came to my aid during my Senate race, which was a very nasty race," Sorenson said, pledging to go all-out for Paul over the next few days.

To cheers from the crowd, he continued: "We're going to take Ron Paul all the way to the White House."



  1. Hahahahaha! Hold on a minute, let me catch my breath... Hahahahaha!!!

  2. Why did Sorenson support Bachmann in the first place when Paul supported him I his senate race? Can he be trusted? Who's next?

  3. Anonymous is right. This Sorenson guy could be a CIA plant. Too paranoid? Remember what happened the last time somebody in a position to do something about the military-industrial complex actually started doing something? He met his end near a grassy knoll in Dallas.

  4. I agree with anonymous: Why did Sorenson support Bachmann in the first place and can he be trusted? Probably not

  5. Anyone who switches or defects to the Ron Paul camp AFTER he wins Iowa and New Hamsphire should be welcomed and asked to come clean publicly BUT watched very closely thereafter. Don't these high level types who defect violate any non-disclosure agreements?

  6. Can you fault a guy for jumping ship when it starts to sink? Just be prepared for more jumpers and more sinking ships? Ron Paul to the rescue.

  7. Yep, let them all come support him. You don't have to let them in so close that they can hurt you.
