Candidate Bachmann finishes a corn dog then promises cheap gas.

How, she’s not ready to disclose, but with her campaign suddenly gaining strength, presidential candidate Michelle Bachmann is amping up her populist message by promising to cut gas prices in half.

“The day that the president became president gasoline was $1.79 a gallon.  Look at where it is today,” Bachmann said during a stump speech.  “Under President Bachmann, you will see gasoline come down below $2 a gallon again.  That will happen.”
