ST. PAUL (AP) – Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann says she’s honored to be part of the congressional delegation headed to London for the funeral of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

Bachmann is one of three House members in the official delegation, along with Republican Reps. Marsha Blackburn and George Holding of North Carolina.

Bachmann has long spoken highly of Thatcher as a conservative icon. During Bachmann’s failed presidential run, she said she would emulate Britain’s Iron Lady.

The funeral for Thatcher, who died last week, will take place Wednesday at St. Paul’s Cathedral.

The House delegation will fly commercial to London. In February, Boehner suspended the use of military aircraft for official trips by House members, part of the belt-tightening by Congress in response to automatic, across-the-board spending cuts that kicked in March 1.
