(Atlantic) With less than a week to go before the Iowa Caucus, Republican Michelle Bachmann made a campaign stop in Cass County last night.
Last evening at the Atlantic Pizza Ranch, Michelle Bachman introduced herself and took pictures with nearly the entire crowd before addressing the group with her message.
"When you have someone as socialistic as Barack Obama, we need a rock solid conservative to take him on and take his policies on. That's my proven record, that's my signature, I have taken him on he knows who I am. I will do it in the debates and I will go on to win in 2012."
Bachmann spoke with confidence and conviction ahead of the Iowa Caucus next week.
"I want you to know that I can win this election. If you saw the debates in Sioux City, Iowa, you saw how I took it to Ron Paul on the issue of Iran gaining a nuclear weapon. That's exactly what I'm going to do to Barack Obama. We have got to defeat Barack Obama and in order to do that we need the strongest conservative in the race."
Bachmann stood strongly behind her conservative approach.
"I want you to know for five years I have been standing up for our constitution, I have been standing up for smaller government, I have been standing against the out of control spending. And I've been standing up for life, for marriage, for our national security I stand up for our ally Israel and I stand against the radical Jihadist."
The Iowa Caucus will be held January 3rd. Bachman’s stop in Atlantic was her 9th of 10 stops in Western Iowa yesterday as part of her 99 county tour.
