Washington (CNN) - Michele Bachmann's heading back to Iowa.
The Republican congresswoman from neighboring Minnesota, who says she's considering a bid for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination, will attend the March 23 Network of Iowa Christian Home Educators home-school day at the Iowa Capitol in Des Moines.
A Bachmann spokesman confirms to CNN that Bachmann will appear at the event.
"As a mother of 5 and foster mother to 23, as well as someone who homeschooled her children, Congresswoman Bachmann is a strong supporter of homeschooling and is looking forward to speaking to the group in Iowa," says Bachmann spokesman Doug Sachtleben.
The Network of Iowa Christian Home Educators is a well organized evangelical group in Iowa. The organization's website says their mission is "to provide Christ-centered events, communications and resources to better equip, inform and encourage Iowa home educators to the glory of God."
Word of the visit, first reported by Tom Beaumont of the Des Moines Register, came as Bachmann gave the first ever Tea Party response to the president's State of the Union address. It also came just four days after Bachmann made her first visit to Iowa since saying she is considering a run for the White House. The three-term conservative representative, a co-founder of the House Tea Party coalition, spoke to the fiscally conservative Iowans for Tax Relief on Friday, as well as meeting with the state's Republican governor and head of the state GOP.
The Network of Iowa Christian Home Educators website says Rep. Steve King of Iowa and Bob Vander Plaats, president of the Iowa social conservative group The Family Leader, are also scheduled to attend the home-school event.
Iowa, of course, plays a prominent role in the race for the White House, as its caucuses kick of the presidential primary season.
