Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann told The Associated Press Sunday that as president, she would approve drilling for oil and natural gas in the Everglades.

"The United States needs to be less dependent on foreign sources of energy and more dependent upon American resourcefulness," the candidate said. "Whether that is in the Everglades, or whether that is in the eastern Gulf region, or whether that's in North Dakota, we need to go where the energy is."
