Report: Bachmann has suspended US presidential campaign

WASHINGTON - US Republican presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann is suspending her bid for the White House after coming in a distant sixth in the Iowa caucuses, CNN reported on Wednesday.
The US congresswoman's decision to pull out could favor rival Rick Santorum, who narrowly came in second to Mitt Romney in Tuesday's Iowa caucuses.
Santorum, Bachmann and Texas Governor Rick Perry, who is "reassessing" his campaign, have been courting support from evangelical Christians. If a significant number of evangelicals eventually rally behind Santorum, his long-shot campaign could receive a major boost.
