Sharron Angle in Iowa: 'I have lots of options for the future'

Nevada Republican Sharron Angle, in Iowa on Wednesday, said she wouldn't rule out a presidential bid in 2012. 

"I'll just say I have lots of options for the future, and I'm investigating all my options," Angle said when asked about running for president in 2012, according to the Des Moines Register.

A White House bid next year by Angle, who lost a close race to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (R-Nev.) last cycle, isn't exactly likely. But Angle now gets added to the list of Republicans who have set foot in Iowa recently and haven't ruled out a presidential run.

Last week, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) became the latest Tea Party star to start testing the waters. After a speech in the state last Friday, Bachmann met with Republican leaders and told reporters she wants to be a part of the 2012 conversation.  

Angle was in the state attending the premiere of a film targeting conservative Christian audiences, titled "The Genesis Code." One of the film's stars is former Tennessee senator and 2008 presidential hopeful Fred Thompson (R). 

Angle said she wants to return to Iowa, saying, "Please, just invite me back."
