October 10, 2011

Prominent GOP candidate Michele Bachmann will speak at noon in Sioux Center Friday, October 14, in the lower level of the Dordt College Campus Center.

The Dordt College Political Action Club (DPAC), a nonpartisan student group that hosts political candidates on campus as an educational service to students and the community, is sponsoring Bachmann’s appearance at Dordt College. Bachmann is serving her third term in the United States House of Representatives, representing the 6th district of Minnesota. Bachmann is a strong supporter of the Tea Party Movement and is the founder of the Tea Party Caucus.

Dordt College and the DPAC have a history of hosting candidates for public office at the local, state, and national levels as a way to promote civic awareness and political engagement by Christians. These public forums give Dordt students and the entire community an opportunity to meet candidates and learn more about the political process.
