This Friday, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is headlining a fundraising event for Iowans for Tax Relief. Bachmann made national news when one of her staffers admitted that she was considering a run for president and was headed to Iowa.
Any trip to Iowa by a major political figure is bound to raise eyebrows, but the national media seemed quick to dismiss Bachmann as a possible presidential candidate. If she does run, the conservative Bachmann will be a major player in the caucuses, especially considering her close relationship to Iowa’s conservative icon, Congressman Steve King.
While Bachmann’s visit to Iowa is noteworthy, so too is what she is doing while in the First-In-The-Nation state. Some of the GOP’s biggest names have headlined events for Iowans for Tax Relief in the past year. Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, Former Speaker Newt Gingrich, and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie have all used the stage that Iowans for Tax Relief provides to reach out to Iowans.
Only time will tell if Bachmann actually pulls the trigger and actually runs for president. However, knowing that she is headlining a high profile event, doing interviews with Jan Mickelson and Steve Deace, and reaching out to some high profile political opinion makers while in the state, indicates that she is doing more than flirting with a presidential run.
Tickets are still available for the Iowans for Tax Relief event featuring Bachmann. The event details are as follows.
