ST. PAUL (WCCO) – She’s no longer in the running for the Republican presidential nomination, and she’s also no longer in the running to tango with Mark Ballas.

Rep. Michele Bachmann announced Wednesday that she will not be joining the next season of ABC’s reality competition series “Dancing with the Stars.”

Bachmann responded to recent rumors, suggesting that even though she has a “lifelong love of ballroom dancing,” she will continue to focus on her political career.

“Serious issues face our nation,” said Bachmann in a press release.

If she had competed, Bachmann wouldn’t have been the first person to do the fox trot primarily based on political connections. Former contestants include Bristol Palin and Tom DeLay.
