She hasn’t been back to New Hampshire since her campaign kickoff two months ago. She canceled a planned visit to the Granite State after her Ames straw poll win — and began spending her time in South Carolina, Florida and Iowa instead…
“Iowa is our main focus right now, secondly is South Carolina,” Bachmann spokeswoman Alice Stewart said in an email. “We do plan to build on our efforts in New Hampshire in due time.”
The locals already suspected they were being blown off.
“People are baffled by the fact she hasn’t been here since before the straw poll,” said former state GOP chairman Fergus Cullen, who penned a column for the Union Leader over the weekend on the subject. “Activists notice when she’s campaigning in Florida and making two trips to South Carolina but isn’t scheduled to make any visits to New Hampshire.”
