Michele Bachmann loses a Tea Party vote for GOP post

A libertarian icon who helped inspire the Tea Party movement won't be supporting Rep. Michele Bachmann's bid to be in the House Republican leadership.Rep. Ron Paul, father of newly elected Kentucky senator Rand Paul, is backing Rep. Jeb Hensarling for chairman of the House Republican Conference, the party's No. 4 leadership post. The senior Paul and Hensarling are both Texans. Bachmann, from Minnesota, founded the Tea Party Caucus in Congress.
