Bachmann on Pawlenty: Too bad certain candidates feel the need to go negative

“This is an election about the future of our nation – one where voters will have to decide who is best equipped to lead our nation by looking at our records, as well as our vision for the nation,” Bachmann responded in a statement. “Instead of negativity, I want to focus on my accomplishments.”

Her statement didn’t mention Pawlenty by name, and played up her dogged opposition to some of President Obama’s agenda, including healthcare reform, cap-and-trade, and the 2008 Wall Street bailout.
