Correction: Because of an editing error, the Morning Hot Dish newsletter incorrectly listed the day that U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann is speaking at the Minnesota Republican Party's Elephant Club luncheon.
The event is Wednesday, Oct. 10. The luncheon is at the Hilton Minneapolis, from noon to 1 p.m.
GOP Party Chairman Keith Downey released a letter to a party committee questioning the judgment and competency of Deputy Chairman Chris Fields just days ahead of the election for party officers in St. Cloud Saturday.
