Bachmann: Social issues receiving ‘virtually no’ attention

Bachmann said she was meeting with the faith community in Iowa to let voters know where she stands on these issues.

During the interview Bachmann also praised Apple co-founder and chairman Steve Jobs, who died Wednesday at age 56.

"To lose him is to lose a part of American genius," said Bachmann.

"He was such a unique thinker and to lose him there isn't really replacement for him. I think we all saw the demise was coming, but when it came it was a very sad moment," she added.

An icon of American business on par with Henry Ford and Walt Disney, Jobs left a permanent imprint on the development of consumer technology.

"Steve was among the greatest of American innovators — brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it," President Obama said in a White House statement.
