WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — After a disappointing sixth-place finish in Iowa’s caucuses Wednesday night, Rep. Michele Bachmann calls it quits.

Bachmann, a harsh critic of President Barack Obama, said “there was no viable way forward,” formally ending her bid for the Republican presidential nomination.

“Last night the people of Iowa spoke with a very clear voice, and so I have decided to stand aside,” Bachmann told supporters in Iowa. Bachmann added, however, that she will continue her efforts to “defeat the president’s agenda of socialism.”
