Bachmann's Office Says Migraines Not an Issue

Ad Feedback

An aide to GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann is downplaying reports that the Minnesota congresswoman suffers from debilitating migraine headaches.

Alice Stewart rejected a report that severe headaches would keep Bachmann from carrying out the job of president.

"Twelve percent of Americans suffer from migraines, so if you're saying that Americans who suffer from migraines can't do their jobs, then I think you're going to run into problems," Stewart said.

The Daily Caller reported that Bachmann's past migraines have led to hospitalizations. The story cites "anonymous former aides" as sources for the information.

Stewart said Bachmann's migraines are successfully treated with medication.
