Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann addressed about 10,000 students at Liberty University Wednesday, telling them not to settle for easy political choices in life.
Bachmann spent most of her time talking about personal values. She quoted scripture several times during the speech.
She told students about how she used to set her alarm for 5 a.m. as a teen so she could wake and read the Bible.
"Even though I hadn't been a drinker, even though I never did drugs, even though I hadn't been chasing around, it didn't matter. I was a sinner," Bachmann said. "I radically abandoned myself to Jesus Christ."
Bachmann didn't mention any of her GOP primary rivals. In national polls, she has fallen well behind front runners Rick Perry and Mitt Romney.
