Bachmann Mulling 2012 Run Comes To Ohio

ARCHBOLD, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio is playing host to a Minnesota congresswoman considering a 2012 presidential run.

U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann is lined up to speak at a Republican fundraiser in northwest Ohio on Friday night.

She's a tea party favorite and a three-term congresswoman.

Her appearance comes just days after another social conservative, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, decided against seeking the GOP nomination.

She'll speak at an event in Archbold hosted by Ohio congressman Bob Latta.

Bachmann says she'll decide on whether to run for the White House by sometime in June.

Few knew of her until recently when she became hero of the conservative tea party movement by fighting with the GOP establishment.
