Bachmann to address Ralph Reed's 'Faith'

(CNN) - Add another pre-campaign stump to GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann's schedule. Ralph Reed, chairman of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, tweeted news Monday of Bachmann's confirmed attendance at the group's conference and strategy briefing to be held in D.C. on June 3-4.

Bachmann will address the conference, billed as a "top destination for conservative activists who want to learn how to beat the Left," according to the Faith and Freedom Coalition website. The third-term congresswoman is expected to announce a presidential exploratory committee in June, the first official step toward a presidential candidacy.

FFC is described as an organization committed to "mobilizing people of faith and like-minded individuals to be effective citizens." Five presidential candidates have also confirmed attendance for the conference, according to JoAnne Reed, Director of Operations for the group and wife of Ralph Reed. An announcement for the final speaker's list and program, including the mystery attendees, is expected in the next two weeks.

Invited speakers include a who's who of potential GOP presidential candidates like former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. Breakout sessions cover topics from "The Future of the Tea Party Movement" and "Keys to Victory in 2012," to "Combating Liberal Media Bias."

    The same Ralph Reed who barely escaped jail time with the sleazy weazily Tom Delay?
    Disgusting gets more disgusting.
    There is nothing worse (which has become the norm for GOPers) – using religion to gain money and power.
