Bachmann on Message at Franklin Christian Rally

Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann stuck to her campaign talking points as she arrived Friday for a Christian rally held at the Old Natchez Country Club about five miles north of Franklin.
A further excerpt from The Tennessean:
The event preceded a $1,000-per-person fundraiser held later at a private home.
The Minnesota congresswoman took a few moments to talk to the media before entering the event, which was open to donors for $125 but closed to reporters.
“I’m thrilled and delighted to be here,” Bachmann said.
…Organizer Ronda Holmberg said the Apologetics Group, a Christian organization that planned the rally at the club, said Bachmann was here to meet with spiritual leaders and “share her heart.”
A news release regarding the event said organizers excluded the media so that the congresswoman could speak freely about her faith without concern that she would be “misunderstood, ‘sound-byted’ out of context and then fed into the ‘meat the press’ maelstrom that is the modern 24-hour-day news cycle.”
