Bachmann may be close to taking next step

A spokesman for Congresswoman Michele Bachmann told Minnesota Public Radio News Bachmann still plans to make a decision about a presidential bid sometime this summer.

Another aide told the Associated Press the tea party leader could create a presidential exploratory committee as early as May. The first GOP debates are May 2 in California and May 5 in South Carolina. That aide said those debates are factors as Bachmann decides when to make a campaign official, but adds the debates alone are not going to make her decision.
