Late-Night TV Target Bachmann To Get In On The Act

ST. PAUL (AP) – Republican Michele Bachmann has been the target of ample jokes on late-night television. Now the presidential candidate plans to get in on the act.

A Bachmann spokesman confirmed the Minnesota congresswoman will appear next Friday on NBC’s “Tonight Show.” Bachmann will be in Los Angeles to deliver a long-planned speech to the California GOP’s state convention.

Show host Jay Leno has poked at Bachmann many times since she got into the White House race, sometimes over her history flubs and also over controversial policy positions.

Bachmann shot onto the presidential scene this summer but has since been overshadowed by top Republican contenders Rick Perry and Mitt Romney.

Past presidential candidates have used late-night TV appearances to show off a looser side than voters typically see.
