Jul 15, 2011, 17:17 ET from National Press Club

Minnesota Congresswoman Will Discuss National Debt, Economy, Unemployment and Offer Vision on Solutions

WASHINGTON, July 15, 2011  /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) and GOP Presidential-hopeful will address the National Press Club at a luncheon on July 28. She will discuss government spending, the national debt and other issues of importance and lay out her case for a fundamental restructuring on the way Washington spends taxpayer dollars and ideas for turning around the economy and putting Americans back to work.


Since Bachmann entered the 2012 Republican presidential contest she has led her fellow candidates in Iowa polls.  She has publicly spoken out against raising the national debt ceiling calling it a "sign of leadership failure" and has so far, stayed away from the "Cut, Cap, Balance" pledge of others in her party.  Bachmann is a Tea Party favorite and continues to grow in popularity among Republicans.

Michele Maria Bachmann, the state's first Republican woman elected to Congress, represents Minnesota's 6th Congressional district and is a founder of the House Tea Party Caucus.  She previously served in the Minnesota State Senate.  

The July 28 Press Club luncheon will begin promptly at 12:30 p.m.  Remarks will begin at 1:00 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session.   This event is sold out.
