Bachmann: Former Cain Backers Moving Her Way

GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann says many people who had supported Herman Cain in the race are getting behind her candidacy. With Cain now out of the race, Bachmann says Republican voters see her as the tea party candidate and the "most consistent conservative" in the contest.The Minnesota congresswoman tells reporters that Cain's supporters considered him as an outsider and that her conservative positions are most reflective of his. Cain abandoned his White House bid on Saturday under the weight of sexual misconduct allegations.
