Bachmann Makes First Political Trip To New Hampshire
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire is a popular place this week with Minnesota politicians who might have their eye on the White House.
Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty left the state after a two-day visit ending Friday, just as U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann was arriving for her weekend visit.
Bachmann, popular with conservatives and tea party activists, attended a private fundraiser Friday night and was meeting with members of the Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire on Saturday before headlining a state GOP fundraiser in Nashua later in the day.
Bachmann recently has visited two other early nominating states. She’s expected to announce whether she’s running by early summer.
