WASHINGTON, D.C. — The two darlings of the Tea Party Right will campaign together, as former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin hits the campaign trail for Rep. Michele Bachmann.
Palin’s visit to the 6th District is slated for April 7, though details of the joint appearance have yet to be revealed.
“There is absolutely no one more in tune with the hearts and minds of everyday Americans than Governor Palin, and I’m excited to welcome her back to our beautiful state this spring,” Bachmann said in a statement.
Bachmann is a top target for Democrats in 2010 – hers was listed as in the top “Races to Watch” by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Two top challengers have emerged so far, state Sen. Tarryl Clark and Maureen Reed.
