Former presidential candidate Michele Bachmann shot down rumors on Wednesday that she’s preparing to endorse Mitt Romney in the Republican presidential contest.

“Let me be absolutely clear — there are absolutely no negotiations between me and the Romney campaign regarding any pending endorsement of Governor Romney,” Bachmann said in a statement.

The Boston Globe reported on Wednesday that aides “to Romney and the Minnesota congresswoman have been in conversation in recent days about securing the candidate’s endorsement.”

In her statement, Bachmann asked the newspaper to correct its story.

“I continue to speak with all the candidates and plan on uniting behind the presumptive nominee,” she said. “The Boston Globe article today is completely false and I call on the Globe to retract their article.”
