MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann is the

keynote speaker at a GOP event in Iowa later this month, and a

spokesman says she has "not ruled out" a presidential bid.

Chief of Staff Andy Parrish tells The Associated Press that

Bachmann plans to travel around the country in the next few months

and will be "talking to people about why we can't re-elect Barack

Obama."

Parrish wouldn't say when Bachmann, a tea party favorite, will

decide. But he says she won't be affected by the decisions of

fellow Minnesota Republican Tim Pawlenty or former Alaska Gov.

Sarah Palin.

Bachmann herself was traveling and not immediately available for

comment.
