ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann of Minnesota has a date with leading California Republicans.

 

The Republican congresswoman was announced Monday as a speaker at the California GOP’s state convention. She’ll give a banquet address during the gathering in Los Angeles in September.

 

Bachmann is a tea party favorite who has found herself in the thick of the 2012 race for the Republican presidential nomination.

 

Bachmann’s appearance is a win for the party, which has struggled to attract high-profile speakers at its last few conventions.
