On Wednesday morning, GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann said on 'Fox and Friends' that she had received a phone call from evangelical leader Bob Vander Plaats, asking her to drop out and throw her support to either Rick Santorum or Rick Perry (video below).
“I did receive a phone call,” Bachmann said. “I’ve been polling above the Ricks. There would be no reason for me to drop out.”
Bachmann then named her long list of Iowa supporters, including over 100 pastors and about 900 former Herman Cain supporters, who she claims are on her side. “They can certainly ask,” she noted on the phone call to drop out, “but we’re not here to do that.”
