AMES, Iowa - It might be a preview of the months ahead in
the GOP presidential race.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who just got into the race, and U.S. Rep.
Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, fresh off an Iowa straw poll
victory, are competing for attention Sunday as their campaign
schedules put them at the same event.

Both have the backing of tea partyers and evangelical
conservatives. Both already are making big plays for those two
important constituencies in Iowa.

Perry is making his first campaign visit to Iowa since
announcing his candidacy Saturday in South Carolina.

Bachmann is reveling in her first-place finish in the test vote
Saturday that proved her campaign has the organizational skills and
volunteer network needed to compete strongly in the state's
caucuses next winter.
