Republican 1st District Congressional candidate Allen Quist announced today that GOP Congresswoman Michele Bachmann will appear on his behalf this month at two campaign fundraisers in Rochester.
According to a Quist news release, the fundraisers are scheduled for Friday, July 20, at the home of Dr. Scott and Jann Wright. His web site says tickets for a private reception are $250, while tickets for a general reception are $50.
"Michele Bachmann's appearance will highlight the looming political battles to balance the federal budget and to replace Obamacare with free market health care solutions," the release said.
Quist is running in the GOP primary against state Sen. Mike Parry, R-Waseca. The winner will face incumbent Democratic Congressman Tim Walz in November.
