Coming off delivering her response to the State of the Union Tuesday night, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann (R) is planning to head to Iowa in March.
Bachmann will attend an event hosted by the Network of Iowa Christian Home Educators on March 23 in Des Moines, according to the group’s website. The event is designed to put a “face” on homeschooling for Iowa state legislators.
The trip is the latest sign that Bachmann is seriously considering a run for president. Bachmann was just in Iowa last week for a fundraiser and her PAC contributed to several Iowa state legislators in the run up to Election Day last year.
The event also shows that Bachmann is weighing in on an issue that is quickly gaining traction in the potential 2012 GOP field: education. As Hotline On Call reported last week, former Minnesota Gov.Tim Pawlenty (R) and Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels (R) have also sought to take hold of education reform.
