“Dancing with the Stars” appears to be courting presidential candidates who have dropped out of the race, and one of them, Michele Bachmann, has made it official that she’s not interested, the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker blog reports.
Bachmann denied a report that she was planning to appear in the next season of ABC’s hit dance competition, the story reports.
"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. But, despite my tenth grade polka success and my lifelong love of ballroom dancing, the recent rumors are false," Bachmann said in a statement released on her website.
The names of other former presidential candidates — notably Herman Cain — have also come up in rumors about who will be on the next season of the show. A spokesman for Cain denied this week that Cain would be on the show.
“Dancing” will return March 19 for its 14th season.
