GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann has hit the Sunday morning jackpot. Bachmann is scheduled to appear on NBC’s Meet the Press, CBS’ Face the Nation, ABC’s This Week, Fox News Sunday and CNN’s State of the Union. Minnesota’s 6th District Congresswoman will make the appearances one day after the Iowa Straw Poll – an early test for the strength of the 2012 candidates.
Bachmann is hoping to do well at the Straw Poll and will use hear appearances to lay out where her campaign goes from there.
Former Gov. Tim Pawlenty will also appear on a Sunday show. He’s scheduled to appear on ABC’s This Week.
Here’s the rundown from AP:
