Michele Bachmann Returns to Ames for Iowa-Iowa State Game
On Aug. 13, the same day that U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota won the Iowa Republican straw poll in Ames, Texas Gov. Rick Perry announced that he was running for the GOP’s presidential nomination. Perry has leaped over Bachmann in polls of Iowa since that time, so the Minnesota congresswoman is doubling down on the Hawkeye State.
Bachmann will be heading back to Ames on Saturday to catch a little college football as Iowa state hosts the University of Iowa. The congresswoman will be tailgating with Iowa state Sen. Jack Whitver and supporters before the game.
