Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) is set to meet Sarah Palin tonight, Minnesota Public Radio reports.
Palin is in Minnesota today for her book tour, and is scheduled to attend a private fundraiser where Bachmann will also be showing up. “I hope I can get a book and maybe get it signed,” Bachmann told reporters.
Bachmann was also asked about the potential presidential candidacies of both Palin and her own governor, Tim Pawlenty — and didn’t immediately commit to either one. “I like both of them, ” Bachmann said. “They’re great. Of course I’m very partial toward our own governor. I think he’s marvelous, but I love Gov. Palin. And I’m sure that there will be a lot more choices out there as well. So, I’ll withhold judgement as to who I’ll be supporting.”
