In an interview on Fox News, host Martha MacCallum asked Bachmann how the recent announcements by Mike Huckabee and Donald Trump, who have declared that they won't be running, has changed Bachmann's own decision-making process.
"Well I think what this has changed is the grassroots, and what they're looking for," said Bachmann. "Our phones have been ringing off the hook, our Facebook has been lit up, our donations are pouring in. And people are saying, 'Michele, jump in, we want you to run.' And we had announced earlier that we would be looking at a June entry date for a decision one way or another about this race. Possibly, we may move that up."
MacCallum asked Bachmann when she now expected to make her announcement.
"Well, that's a good question. We're talking to a number of people, and you know, things are in the works. So we will let you know."
