MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Well-traveled Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann is making a public appearance in Minnesota to give a speech to the American Legion’s national convention.

Bachmann, a 2012 presidential hopeful, was slated to address the major veterans’ organization Thursday morning. The convention’s speaker roster has also included President Barack Obama and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

Bachmann has spent much her time lately in Iowa, South Carolina and other places as she seeks her party’s presidential nomination.

In June, she delivered a speech at another convention in Minneapolis soon after announcing her White House intentions.

After winning a closely watched straw poll in Iowa, Bachmann has been overshadowed by the emergence of Texas Gov. Rick Perry. She also trails former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in most national polls.
