NORWALK, Iowa (AP) – Republican Minnesota congresswoman Michele Bachmann says she will submit only balanced budgets if she’s elected president next year.

But Bachmann, speaking at a campaign event Wednesday in Norwalk, declined to promise that she would veto deficit budgets, leaving to Congress what makes it to her desk.

Bachmann is returning to Iowa a day after facing questions about the migraine headaches she suffers. Her campaign issued a statement Tuesday saying Bachmann takes prescription medication when the symptoms arise, but the headaches would not impede her ability to serve as president.

Asked by reporters Wednesday in Iowa about her headaches, Bachmann responded: “I keep a very rigorous schedule, and I feel great.”

Bachmann plans to stop in at a West Des Moines deli, meet with ministers and conduct an event on Twitter.
