Michele Bachmann will appear Sunday on "Face the Nation" on CBS to discuss President Obama's upcoming jobs talk, the Wednesday Republican presidential debate in California and what impact Texas Gov. Rick Perry has had on her campaign.
Bachmann, a Republican congresswoman from Minnesota's 6th District, has appeared on the program before. In June, she said prayer had given her a "a sense of assurance about the direction I think that God is speaking into my heart that I should go."
The appearance comes at a pivotal time for her campaign. Since she jumped into the race two months ago, her star has risen -- she won an Iowa straw poll last month and was at or near the top of polls as Republicans' pick -- and declined -- polls now show her in third or worse, behind Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney, as Perry has sucked up interest from social and fiscal conservatives.
