Republicans running for the White House are starting to make the rounds in Arizona.

On Tuesday night, U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann made a surprise visit to the state and had dinner with Cindy McCain.

The manager of the Tee Pee restaurant Jeff Killeen tells KTVK-TV everyone inside the restaurant was quite surprised when the congresswoman arrived for dinner. Killeen says Bachmann was friendly to all who approached and asked for photos.

The television station reports Bachmann will hold a private fundraiser Wednesday night in the Phoenix-area.

The visits come days after Gov. Jan Brewer announced Arizona would hold its presidential primary on February 28, 2012

Brewer also announced the state will likely host a Republican presidential debate, possibly in December.

  1. The next headline will be, “Bristol Palin has a hissy fit” after hearing about Cindy McCain and Michele Bachman.

  2. I do hope Brewer is aware of the cost of hosting a RNC debate.
    Also surprised she and 17 other Republicans are backing Romney over
    one of the zealots ……and even more surprised that not more people are behind Jon Huntsman who, seems to me, is the only really sensible, worldly, most electable and knowledgeable candidate.

  3. Intellectual lightweights go slumming for chips and salsa is a news story?
