MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Michele Bachmann invited her supporters to meet her in Minneapolis, but the Minnesota congresswoman has canceled a town hall that had been scheduled for Thursday.

The town hall was supposed to precede a private fundraiser for the GOP presidential hopeful at a downtown hotel, but spokeswoman Alice Stewart said the campaign had a scheduling conflict.

The fundraiser is still on, with tickets ranging from $250 to $10,000 per couple.

Bachmann has fallen in polls and struggled to raise money in recent months.
