DES MOINES, Iowa - Michele Bachmann has ended her presidential campaign - leaving her supporters up for grabs as Rick Santorum tries to become the conservative heavyweight in the Republican race.

She said Wednesday she has "decided to stand aside" but would continue fighting to overturn what she called President Barack Obama's "socialist policies."

Bachmann was a distant sixth in Iowa and her campaign is low on money. She had initially told reporters after the Tuesday night vote that she would carry on.
