A campaign spokesperson for presidential candidate Michele Bachmann says a report documenting the severity of the Minnesota congresswoman’s migraines is overblown. But, there has been at least one admitted instance of Bachmann being sidelined for days due to a severe migraine and other instances of her falling ill on the House floor.
Alice Stewart, national press secretary for Bachmann’s White House bid, joined the campaign in mid-June, and Stewart says she has seen no evidence of migraines disrupting the aggressive schedule.
“We’ve been going six, seven events a day,” says Stewart, “(Bachmann) has not missed a single event due to her headaches.”
Stewart confirms Bachmann does get headaches occasionally, but “they are manageable with medication.”
