Bachmann’s office announced Wednesday that rumors the Minnesota Republican and former presidential contender would appear on Season 14 of the popular ABC show are false and that Bachmann’s “time and attention remains committed to creating more private sector jobs, and higher paying jobs, in the Sixth Congressional District.”

“In full disclosure, I did win a polka dancing competition when I was in the tenth grade at my alma mater, Anoka High School in Anoka, Minn.,” Bachmann said in the statement. “But, despite my tenth grade polka success and my lifelong love of ballroom dancing, the recent rumors are false. I will not be joining ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ ”

The latest season of the show begins March 19; ABC is expected to announce its lineup during the Feb. 28 airing of “Good Morning America.”
