JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann won't rule out changes to the federal minimum wage as a way to attract corporations back to the United States.

She told supporters who packed a sub shop Friday that corporate taxes need to be reduced to lure companies back to the United States. She was asked by a reporter afterward whether changes to the minimum wage should also be considered to balance the cost of labor here and overseas.

Bachmann said she's "not married to anything," but she didn't rule it out.

She said she would ask advisers from labor, manufacturers, services industries and financial services for advice on how to create jobs.
