WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — Michele Bachmann’s campaign manager says it’s hard to tell whether she will continue her campaign after a bleak showing in the Iowa caucuses.
Asked if he could say with certainty whether she would go forward with her candidacy, Bachmann campaign manager Keith Nahigian told The Associated Press: “I don’t know yet.”
He added: “It’s hard to tell, but everything is planned.”
