Rep. Michele Bachmann is one of four Tea Party lawmakers who will join forces for a town hall event next week.
Bachmann, Rep. Steve King of Iowa, and freshman Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Mike Lee of Utah will host the town hall at the National Press Club next Tuesday.
All four are members of their chamber’s Tea Party Caucus — Bachmann founded the House version last July and Paul founded the Senate’s caucus this year.
The event, which will have a live audience for questions, is
being hosted by the Tea Party Express, the same group that aired Bachmann’s State of the Union response last week.
The town hall is not Bachmann’s first with a Tea Party tinge: She hosted her own
tele-town hall last September with seven members of the House Tea Party caucus.
