Bachmann cancels appearance after illness

Saturday, July 31, 2010 | 3:58 p.m. CDT

MINNEAPOLIS — U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann canceled a Missouri campaign appearance for a U.S. Senate candidate after being hospitalized.

Bachmann spokesman Dave Dziok told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that she was hospitalized most of Friday and that doctors advised her to rest. He declined to reveal the nature of her illness.

A statement on her website Friday night said the Republican was resting and expects a quick recovery.

The illness kept her from going Saturday morning to St. Louis, where she is backing Roy Blunt, a U.S. House member running in the GOP primary for the U.S. Senate.

Bachmann missed several votes on the Gulf Oil spill just before the U.S. House adjourned for an August recess.
