Former Chairman Of Michele Bachmann’s Iowa Campaign Endorses Ron Paul

Sometimes, things happen in politics that you just have to laugh at and this is one them:

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.

You really cannot make this stuff up.

    This should surprise no one. She is notorious for burning through her Congressional staff.

    That Sorenson is now doing this speaks volumes.
