DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Republican Michele Bachmann is sticking
with her campaign for president and her accusations that a top Iowa
supporter was paid to defect to rival Ron Paul.
On Thursday, Bachmann dismissed the idea that her campaign was in disarray following the departure of former Iowa chairman Kent Sorenson the night before. She said her campaign organization is strong and that she is looking ahead to Tuesday's first-in-the-nation caucuses.
Sorenson announced Wednesday that he was backing Paul, just a few hours after campaigning at Bachmann's side.
She alleges that Sorenson was offered "a lot of money" to change sides. Sorenson and Paul's campaign deny the allegations.
