ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - All 99 Iowa counties are scheduled to get a visit from Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann between Friday and the end of December.
The Minnesota congresswoman is hoping to pull off a surprise win in the first caucus state. Bachmann won the Iowa GOP's straw poll in August but has seen her standing slide since.
Bachmann's campaign said Monday that the candidate will spend 10 days on the road starting Friday in northwest Iowa. With a break around Christmas, the Bachmann bus tour is expected to have stops in every county in the state by Dec. 28.
Iowa opens the GOP nominating push with its Jan. 3 caucuses.
