Bachmann closes Virginia office; campaign HQ is Iowa

The compression of Congresswoman Michele Bachmann’s presidential campaign efforts now includes the closing of a campaign office in Old Town, Va., just south of the nation’s capital,  Politico says.

That’s meant some staffers from there are working out of other temporary locations, including the space in the Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C., that had been used by campaign manager Keith Nahigian, sources told Politco. The campaign’s main office is now in Des Moines, which, Bachmann spokeswoman Alice Stewart said, has always been the case.

Said Stewart: “With so much of the staff on the road, the Old Town office was simply not convenient.”

The item notes that sources don’t expect Bachmann’s Oct. 15 campaign finance report to show a debt, but that it is likely to be lower than previous quarters.
