Michelle Bachmann, who's practically lived in Iowa these past few months and who spent the past few weeks visiting all 99 of Iowa's counties, has dropped out of the Republican presidential race.

Bachmann, a Congresswoman from Minnesota, born in Iowa, and a favorite of the Tea Party, finished in sixth place out of the six candidates who actually campaigned in Iowa. She came in ahead of Jon Huntsman, but Huntsman has been focusing all of his efforts in New Hampshire, where the primary election is just six days away.

“Last night, the people of Iowa spoke with a very clear voice, and so I have decided to stand aside,” Mrs. Bachmann said at a news conference in West Des Moines, according to the New York Times.
