WASHINGTON — Michele Bachmann is recuperating back in her district today after being hospitalized Friday here in Washington.
“She had to head into the hospital on Friday, but went back to Minnesota on Saturday and has been taking it easy there this weekend,” Bachmann spokesman Dave Dziok said. “She’s doing really well now.”
The illness scuttled Bachmann’s planned weekend campaign trip to St. Louis for Missouri Senate hopeful Roy Blunt, but she was still able to appear via Skype.
Her trip had been criticized by some in the Tea Party, who say Blunt isn’t sufficiently conservative. They argue she should instead favor state Sen. Chuck Purgason, who has been heavily backed by none other than Samuel “Joe “the Plumber” Wurzelbacher.
Dziok declined to discuss what ailed her Friday, but emphasized that it’s “nothing folks should worry about going forward.”
