After his address on health care Tuesday, President Bush headed to a private reception in Wayzata, to raise money for Michele Bachmann.  Bachmann is the Republican candidate for the Sixth District congressional seat.  She faces DFL candidate Patty Wetterling and Independence Party candidate John Binkowski in the race for the seat vacated by Mark Kennedy, who's running for United States Senate. 

Kay Wolsborn, professor of political science at the College of Saint Benedict/Saint John's University talked to MPR's Tom Crann about the politics of the president's visit.
