This a de facto un-endorsement of Michele Bachmann, King's friend in the House, whom he gave early encouragement to, even helping her out with her announcement in Waterloo. She's at sixth place in the polls now, probably torpedoed by her state campaign chairman's departure and her unproven claims that he was bought off. So we can list "actually making an endorsement in Iowa" as another job Americans won't do.
