Weekend shake up in the race for the GOP presidential nomination

The 2012 GOP political landscape was dramatically altered this weekend as Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann surfed a wave of attention coming off the Ames Straw Poll and former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty dropped out of the race.

Meanwhile, on Saturday, Texas Governor Rick Perry announced his entry into the race for the nomination at a meeting of conservatives in South Carolina.

Today on American Morning, Leslie Sanchez, Republican analyst, and Dana Loesch, CNN contributor, join Carol Costello to discuss how the dynamics in the race have changed and to weigh in on what Americans can expect from the candidates in the days to come.
