Michelle Bachmann, Republican presidential candidate and Congresswoman, leans down to give Campbell Taylor, 5, of Lutz a hug at Idlewild Baptist Church in Lutz on Sunday morning, where Bachmann attended a church service. After speaking with church goers and the press, Bachmann shook hands, posed for photos and waved goodbye before getting back on her bus and heading down to Sarasota. Attending church at Idlewild was part of Bachmann’s kick-off tour of the Sunshine State this weekend. In her statements, she made it clear that Florida will be an important state in the 2012 election.
