Bachmann a ‘no’ for Trump debate

Michele Bachmann will not participate in the December 27 debate moderated by Donald Trump.

Bachmann has met with Trump numerous times and held a tele-town hall with the real estate mogul and reality television star. But she declined the debate invite on Thursday after saying she was worried he might be biased in favor of one candidate.

Only two Republican presidential candidates have said they’ll attend the debate — Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich. The rest of the major candidates have said they will not attend.
