CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, who is considering a run for the Republican presidential nomination, says Democrats are terribly afraid of her possible candidacy, and that it’s sexist to suggest that there isn’t enough room in the race for two female, tea party favorites.

Campaigning in Concord, N.H., Tuesday, the Minnesota Republican was asked whether it’s sexist to question whether the race can accommodate both her and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

Bachmann says she doesn’t compare herself Palin, but to President Barack Obama. And she answered the question by criticizing recent comments by the Democratic National Committee chairwoman, who called the GOP agenda “anti-women.”

Bachmann says that comment shows that Democrats think they own women and that they are threatened by her candidacy.
