Republican presidential hopeful U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann has been endorsed by former state Rep. Danny Carroll of Grinnell.
Carroll also is the chairman of the Iowa Family Leader.
Carroll served in the Iowa House of Representatives from 1994-2006, including two terms as Speaker Pro Tempore. He was also the Iowa co-chair for Mike Huckabee’s campaign in 2008.
“I have admired and respected Michele ever since I first met her back in the legislative session,” Carroll said. “The fact that she stood strong on the debt ceiling issue was a clincher for me. She was correct in her position on the debt limit and I appreciate the leadership she has demonstrated throughout the process.”
