Bachmann files by mail for presidential primary

CONCORD - Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann has filed by mail to be a candidate in the New Hampshire Presidential Primary.

Her one-page declaration of candidacy arrived at Secretary of State William Gardner's office early Wednesday.

Bachmann late last week lost her five-person New Hampshire campaign staff in an internal dispute. She has focused on winning the Iowa caucus.

Bachmann's candidacy soared after a nationally televised debate in June, but fell sharply during the summer.

After months of absence from the state, Bachmann returned in early October telling a small group of Tea Party supporters, "I want to be your sweetheart here in New Hampshire."

The filing period for primary candidates closes Friday.
