Michele Bachmann is gearing up for a rematch with an old foe.
The congresswoman is scheduled to appear on Hardball with Chris Matthews this evening, two years after her controversial comments on the show propelled her to national stardom.
The two-term Republican is running for reelection against DFLer Tarryl Clark. Bachmann's campaign said they haven't yet confirmed a time, but the appearance will be after polls close tonight.
In mid-October 2008, Bachmann mused on Hardball that Barack Obama may have "anti-American views." The comment prompted a last-minute infusion of cash to her DFL challenger El Tinklenberg's campaign.
Bachmann later said she made a
"misstatatement" and accused Matthews of laying a "trap."
"I said a comment that I would take back," she said in 2008.
