WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann is brushing off the idea that her campaign is all but giving up on winning the New Hampshire primary.

The Associated Press reported last week that an exodus in New Hampshire cost Bachmann her staff in the first-in-the-nation primary state.

The Minnesota congresswoman tells “Fox News Sunday” that she’s replacing the New Hampshire staff and is focused on Iowa because its caucuses are scheduled Jan. 3, before the New Hampshire primary.

Bachmann has spent little time campaigning in New Hampshire, where her message as a social conservative has less appeal than in Iowa or in South Carolina, another state with an early primary.
