Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann said Friday she wants to help "set the table" as Republicans discuss how to defeat President Barack Obama in 2012.
During an interview with MPR's Morning Edition, Bachmann said her upcoming trip to Iowa was "to explain why we can't afford a second term of Barack Obama."
ABC News reported earlier this week that Bachmann was mulling a run for the presidency. In the MPR interview Friday, Bachmann stopped short of saying she was considering a run.
"Nothing is on or off the table," Bachmann said. "I'm not focusing on myself, I'm focusing on the greater agenda."
Bachmann, who represents Minnesota's 6th District, also spoke about efforts to repeal the health care reform law and about the country's debt.
