Palin to host Bachmann fundraiser in Minneapolis

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is hosting a Minneapolis fundraiser for Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann's re-election effort.

Bachmann's campaign announced today that the 2008 Republican nominee for vice president would headline a private event on April 7 at the Hilton Hotel in Minneapolis. The campaign says plans for a rally are also in the works.

Bachmann is seeking a third term in central Minnesota's 6th Congressional District. Two De-mocrats are seeking the nomination to run against her.

Palin was last in Minnesota in December as part of a book tour.
