ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — For the first time since leaving the White House race, Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann is appearing at a public event in Minnesota.
The congresswoman was scheduled Sunday to take part in an anti-abortion rally at the Minnesota Capitol. The annual event by Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life typically draws thousands; it’s held on the anniversary of the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion.
Bachmann has had few public events in Minnesota in the past half-year, when her focus was on a GOP presidential campaign. She dropped out of the race after finishing sixth in Iowa’s leadoff caucuses in early January.
Bachmann hasn’t announced whether she’ll campaign for a fourth congressional term representing suburbs north and east of the Twin Cities.
