Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann is using a popular social media tool this week to reach out to voters in Tuesday's Iowa Caucus.
Posted today, Bachmann's camp is running a video on YouTube telling potential voters how to caucus on Jan. 3. It also features an introduction recorded from her stop at the on Dec. 28.
Bachmann recorded similar intros in other counties on the bus tour including one in Polk County.
"Iron Lady" Television Ad
Also new this week, Bachmann is running a television ad in Iowa that further compares her to former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher.
The new ad titled, "Iron Lady," talks about Bachmann's intentions of fighting Obamacare, excessive spending and tax increases. The Iron Lady comparison demonstrates how hard-willed Bachmann will be when it comes to maintaining her conservative values.
Attendees at the Waukee Pizza Ranch might remember Bachmann's stump speech when she stated that she wanted to be the "Iron Lady of America."
"Margaret Thatcher came in and she turned England around. She got them set on the right course and they called her the 'Iron Lady.' They meant that term as a mean term, but she wore it as a badge of honor. She said, 'That means I’m principled. That means I stand.' That’s me too. I want to be America’s Iron Lady," said Bachmann.
