Bachmann Brings GOP Presidential Campaign to Pinehurst
Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is stumping in Moore County today to generate local support for her Republican presidential campaign.
Bachmann came to Pinehurst Thursday night to speak at event to raise money for the Moore County Republican Party in the Member’s Club at Pinehurst Resort. Organizers originally insisted that media not be allowed to cover the fundraiser, but officials later relented when several media outlets showed up for the event.
This morning, she held a “meet-and-greet” event at the Country Club of North Carolina before heading off for a round of golf on the country club’s Dogwood Course with a few supporters.
As she greeted supporters and stepped onto the course wearing a pink CCNC visor, Bachmann said she could understand why so many of her fellow Minnesotans come to Moore County to retire.
“It's a slice of heaven and paradise,” she said. “It’s absolutely beautiful. It’s beautiful, but it's also graciousness. This is really part of the best that America is — to come here and see what America has been able to build up. So, it's fun to come here with like-minded people and to share their joy.”
During her keynote address Thursday night, Bachmann told supporters that she expects Republicans to win big in the 2012 elections.
