While office says she’s focusing on her district, Bachmann visits Hawaii, going to Mont. and S.C. soon
Rep. Michele Bachmann’s office told Bloomberg on Tuesday that she wouldn’t be giving interviews this week as she was committed to working in her district. Bachmann’s office made the statement, however, while the Sixth District Republican was on a visit to Hawaii to raise money for Republicans and ahead of a weekend trip to Montana to campaign for her friend Rep. Denny Rehberg. Bachmann’s office also confirmed this week that she will be visiting early-primary state South Carolina toward the end of the month.
Bloomberg’s Margaret Carlson notes, “I called to get a statement on Egypt from Minnesota Representative and House Tea Party Caucus founder Michele Bachmann and was told by her press secretary that, in spite of numerous requests, she wouldn’t be giving any interviews this week while she concentrates on district work.”
Bachmann was in Hawaii on Wednesday for a lunchtime fundraiser with the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii.
Over the weekend, ABC reports that Bachmann will attend a kickoff for Rehberg’s campaign for U.S. Senate. Previously, the Minnesota Independent reported on the trip which will also include a fundraiser for the local Republican party.
And Bachmann’s office confirmed to CNN that she will be visiting that state later in the month to raise money for Republicans.
