WASHINGTON – Rep. Michele Bachmann will return to Washington, DC today to vote on a series of free trade agreements, according to her office. It’s Bachmann’s first appearance and vote on the floor of the U.S. House since Aug. 1. Between August and October, she has campaigned extensively for the Republican presidential nomination across the country.
During the month of September, Bachmann was absent from the Capitol for the entire month aside from a brief stop to hold a press conference after President Obama’s jobs speech to a joint session of Congress on Sept. 7.
Bachmann’s office confirms that she plans to vote for all three trade pacts, which will lower trade barriers between the U.S. and South Korea, Colombia and Panama.
