Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is meeting with top Iowa Republicans Friday morning during her trip to Des Moines, POLITICO has learned.
Bachmann will meet with newly-elected Gov. Terry Branstad and state GOP chairman Matt Strawn.
The conservative firebrand is also planning to meet with several state lawmakers and other Republican activists amidst reports that she is weighing a presidential bid.
ABC News reported earlier this month that Bachmann was seriously eying a run, but the congresswoman was mum about her intentions when asked by POLITICO.
After her meeting with the top GOP officials in the state, Bachmann will spend the afternoon in coffee shops and restaurants in Des Moines introducing herself to voters — something of a rite of passage for anyone wanting to run for president.
The Minnesota congresswoman is also planning to meet with the Des Moines Tea Party during her trip, the source said.
The trip is Bachmann’s third to Iowa in the last year.
If she were to run, Bachmann would be aided by a close relationship with conservative Iowa Rep. Steve King, along with her proven fundraising ability.
