Former President Clinton visits Minnesota


ANDOVER, Minn. (AP) -- Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann says visits this weekend from former President Bill Clinton and President Barack Obama show that she's a "high-value target" for Democrats.

Bachmann campaigned Sunday at a coffee shop and Dairy Queen restaurant in Andover.

She spoke with The Associated Press hours before Clinton was due at a rally for Democratic challenger Tarryl (TEHR'-uhl) Clark in Blaine. A day earlier, Obama appeared at a University of Minnesota rally and held a fundraiser with Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in Minneapolis.

Bachmann says top Democrats see Clark as a "very reliable vote."

Bachmann, Clark and Independence Party candidate Bob Anderson are vying to represent Minnesota's conservative 6th District in the northern Twin Cities suburbs and St. Cloud area.
