Iowa intrigue: Bachmann chair defects to Paul

The longtime chairman of Rep. Michele Bachmann’s presidential campaign in Iowa appeared Wednesday with the congresswoman, and then defected to rival Ron Paul a few hours later.

After staying silent at Bachmann’s rally in Indianola — the explanation was “dental work” — State Sen. Kent Sorenson went on stage before 500 Paul supporters in Des Moines and proclaimed his change of allegiance:

“I adore Michele Bachmann but the fact of the matter is I believe we have an opportunity to take Romney out here in Iowa and I believe that person is Ron Paul.”
