This is amusing:
Kent Sorenson, the one-time chair of Michele Bachmann’s Iowa campaign who threw a jolt into the caucuses by switching to Ron Paul tonight, said he only told Paul officials of his decision when he arrived at a Des Moines rally for the congressman tonight
“10 minutes ago,” Sorenson, a GOP state senator, told POLITICO about when the Paul campaign found out he was moving to their camp.
In one of the most surprising moments of the 2012 campaign, Sorenson strolled on stage just moments before Paul was set to speak and declared that he had switched his allegiance. Just hours earlier, he had been at a Bachmann campaign event with his former candidate. Sorenson’s switch is a major boost to Paul’s campaign, which has been dogged by criticism from establishment Republicans that his support here was largely among Democrats and independents.
A furious Bachmann accused her former chair of being bought off.
We’re really going to see more fail this election year than we are used to.
