Michele Bachmann's entire New Hampshire election staff has resigned, MSNBC reports. Bachmann had initially said that it was untrue that her staff had resigned. It has now been confirmed that the staff left without telling the campaign.
Bachmann is focusing on winning in Iowa, which is driven by the social conservative religious vote. She has strong ties to the Christian community there, and has made remarks about God choosing her to run for office.
In August, Bachmann narrowly defeated Ron Paul in winning the Iowa straw poll. Her win was quickly deflated when Rick Perry announced that he would be running for the GOP presidential nomination.
