Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will bring her star power and fundraising prowess to Minnesota next month to help U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann with reelection.

Bachmann announced Thursday that Palin will host a fundraising dinner April 7 at a Minneapolis hotel. There will be a private reception and photo opportunity at 4:30 p.m., a general reception at 5 p.m. and a dinner at 6 p.m. It's not known how much tickets will cost.

Honorary hosts include Minnesota Republican dynamos such as Gov. Tim Pawlenty, former U.S. Sen. Norm Coleman and U.S. Reps. John Kline and Erik Paulsen.

Bachmann represents Minnesota's Sixth Congressional District, which wraps around the Twin Cities' northern suburbs, stretching past St. Cloud.

She faces Sen. Tarryl Clark, DFL-St. Cloud, and Maureen Reed, also a DFLer.
