Congresswoman Michele Bachmann may be planting her presidential hopes deep in the Iowa soil, but she’s getting around the rest of the country a bit, too.
On Thursday, she’s scheduled to attend events in North Carolina, says the Charlotte Observer.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry will be there, too.
Bachmann’s Thursday plans:
- 12:30 p.m.: Fundraiser — with proceeds going to the North Carolina Republican Party. Entry fee for “An All-American Barbecue” at Troutman’s Barbecue in Concord: $40 per person. Sponsors will pay $500 per couple.
- 2 p.m.: Roundtable discussion of economic issues with business executives at event hosted by the Charlotte Chamber.
- At 2:45 p.m.: Answer questions from news media.
Perry has a $1,000-per-person lunch and speech fundraiser in Charlotte Thursday; for $2,500, there’s a VIP reception and picture with the candidate.
