(Newser) – A second Minnesota Republican is getting off the 2012 sidelines, sort of: Michele Bachmann will form a presidential exploratory committee by early June, CNN reports. The Minnesota congresswoman may form her committee earlier in order to participate in early GOP debates—sources tell CNN she'll file if debate sponsors require it for two in early May. Tim Pawlenty formed his presidential committee earlier this week.
