GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann is scheduled to do a tele-townhall meeting tomorrow night with members of GOPAC, a group that aims to elect Republicans to state and local offices. GOPAC officials say Bachmann will hold the meeting at 6pm CST. The group says Bachmann will take question and will “learn what is at stake this year and in 2012.”
Bachmann appears to be laying the groundwork for a possible run for the White House. She has visited several key states including Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina. Bachmann is scheduled to give a speech in Des Moines, Iowa on Thursday.
Bachmann isn’t the only candidate who has reached out to GOPAC. Tim Pawlenty spoke to the group in 2008 and 2009.
