Nothing personal, Minnesota 6th Congressional District, but to U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, Iowa will always be home.
That’s according to a radio ad running in Iowa promoting her “Welcome back” event Sunday in her hometown of Waterloo, Iowa.
“Iowa is not just another state on the presidential campaign trail,” the announcer says to a peppy tune. “For Michele Bachmann, Iowa will always be home. Born and raised in Waterloo, Michele Bachmann has deep roots here, and our town holds a special place in her heart.”
Bachmann’s voice cuts in, inviting first-in-the-nation-caucus-going Iowans to a rally at the famous Electric Park Ballroom in Waterloo, on the eve of her inaugural presidential kickoff on Monday.
“Let’s make history together in Waterloo,” she says.
