First lady Laura Bush will visit next week to help Republican Michele Bachmann in Minnesota's hottest congressional race.

An invitation obtained by the Associated Press lists her as the star attraction at an Oct. 25th breakfast fundraiser for Bachmann.

The breakfast will take place at the Marriott Minneapolis Southwest in Minnetonka. The reception costs $500 per person, with photographs going for $2,100 dollars.

Spokespeople for Bachmann and Bush would not confirm the event.

The White House has been eager to help Bachmann keep the open Sixth District seat in GOP hands.

President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, top adviser Karl Rove and House Speaker Dennis Hastert have all helped Bachmann, who trails Democrat Patty Wetterling in campaign cash.
