FORT LAUDERDALE — U.S. Rep. Michelle Bachmann is bringing her presidential campaign to Florida.

The Minnesota Republican plans to meet with reporters in Fort Lauderdale on Thursday evening before holding a private fundraiser in Boca Raton.

Bachmann rocketed in voter polls earlier this year, but has since retreated. She caused a stir in a previous visit to Florida by suggesting more oil drilling should be considered in the Everglades.
