Michele Bachmann, on Fox News last night.
"This week -- because there's been virtually no conversation about the life and marriage and family issue -- we've been talking about that this week.
There's also pro-life, pro-marriage, pro-family in New Hampshire, as well."
Having said that, she affirmed the supremacy of the economy, but then veered into social values again.
"That's in the context of the fact that the economy and jobs are number one.
But there's a lot of people out there, like I said, for whom the life issue and marriage is extremely important. They want to know where the candidates stand. No one's really been talking about it, so I wanted to let the voters know where I stand and what my history is."
This might represent a shift in strategy.
When she launched her bid, she surprised everyone by focusing, nearly exclusively, on the deficit and economy. It was head-turning because her political career was shaped by social values, and suddenly, she didn't want to talk about them very much.
But this interview suggests she might return to social conservatism as a main message.
That's probably because there's no way, as a member of the House, she can compete with executives like Rick Perry and Mitt Romney on the economy. It also works nicely with must-win Iowa and its strong evangelical contingent.
So let's see if this is a real shift in her strategy.
