The 2011 Iowa GOP Debate: Bachmann, Pawlenty Wrestle

Follow me on:

9:16 p.m. EST: "I do not think Congresswoman Bachmann's headaches" are an issue, Gov. Tim Pawlenty said, but believes her lack of executive experience will hurt the party's chances of winning the White House in 2012.

9:18 p.m.: "You praised the unconstitutional individual mandate," Bachmann directed at Tim Pawlenty. "That sounds a lot more like Barack Obama to me."

The congresswoman also takes the former Minnesota governor to task for past support of cap and trade legislation. "I fought it with everything that is within me," she said.
