Bachmann book tour continues in Cedar Rapids


Presidential hopeful and Iowa native Michele Bachmann continued her Thanksgiving weekend tour of the state.

She stopped in Cedar Rapids Saturday afternoon to promote her new book.

Bachmann signed copies of her book and addressed a crowd of supporters.

The immigration issue has taken the forefront after Tuesday night's Republican debate.

Once again, Bachmann took a jab at fellow candidate Newt Gingrich for favoring amnesty for some illegal immigrants.

"He has a long history of supporting amnesty and that's not something people in Iowa are supporting. I have a very consistent record that I stand for upholding the law of the land, which is deportation," said Bachmann.

The next 3 Republican debates will be in Iowa.

Candidates will square off again Dec. 10 at Drake University in Des Moines.
