Michele Bachmann has suspended her presidential campaign following a last-place finish in Tuesday's Iowa Caucuses, the first test of GOP hopefuls in a competition to see who will challenge Barack Obama in November.

Speaking in West Des Moines today, she reiterated that her message during her campaign has been the complete repeal of ObamaCare, stated she is not motivated by the promise of political power -- then announced that her quest for the White House has ended.
"I have decided to stand aside," she said, but added that she would continue fighting to overturn what she called President Barack Obama's "socialist policies."
"I believe that we must rally around the person who our party selects." She said she had "no regrets" whatsoever and said she ran her race with integrity and will continue to fight for the causes she emphasized on the campaign trail.
She made numerous references to her belief in God and in the principles upon which America was founded.
Bachmann's exit from the race leaves her supporters up for grabs as Rick Santorum -- who ended up in a virtual tie with Mitt Romney atop the Iowa results -- tries to establish himself as the conservative heavyweight in the GOP race.
