CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - In keeping with the scant attention she has paid to New Hampshire, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann has signed up by mail to get on the state's presidential primary ballot instead of showing up in person or having someone else do it for her.

Though Bachmann could have traveled to New Hampshire herself, sending a staffer wasn't an option after all five of her paid New Hampshire staffers quit last week, complaining that they were kept out of the loop and treated rudely by her national campaign team.

Most of the major candidates have filed in person, although Texas Rep. Ron Paul and Georgia businessman Herman Cain sent campaign workers instead. Bachmann, who has visited New Hampshire twice since launching her campaign, has been focused almost exclusively on Iowa.
