CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Speaking in New Hampshire, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann says she’s “in for 2012,” but that doesn’t mean she’s running for president.

Bachmann wrapped up her speech at a New Hampshire GOP fundraiser Saturday by proclaiming that she’s “in for 2012″ and asking the crowd to join her. She later clarified that she is committed to denying President Barack Obama a second term, not necessarily running herself. She said that decision won’t come until early summer.

Bachmann’s speech was briefly interrupted by a group of young people who were welcomed in as civic-minded college students and then proceeded to march across the room calling for increased funding for AIDS treatment programs.
