WASHINGTON - Republican presidential candidate and Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is returning to the nation's capital on Monday. But she won't be returning to Congress - the U.S. House is on recess next week. Instead, she'll be delivering a speech at the religious conservative Family Research Council.
In an email from her campaign, Bachmann says, "I will share with you my philosophy on the role of government in the lives of Americans and my thoughts on the constitutional conservative principles that would govern a Bachmann presidency."
Bachmann's return to Washington comes as her poll numbers continue to sink. The latest Washington Post/ABC poll puts her support at 4 percent nationally, down three points from a month before.
The feature examines statements made by Minnesota politicians and checks them for accuracy. Based on data analysis, document reviews and interviews with non-partisan analysts, statements are rated true, misleading, false or inconclusive.
