Michele Bachmann is slated to deliver an alternative response to the president’s speech through the Tea Party Express website.

In a fundraising e-mail sent to supporters Friday, the Tea Party Express announced the Minnesota congresswoman “has confirmed with us that she will broadcast her response to Barack Obama’s State of the Union address this Tuesday.  You’ll be able to watch her rebut Obama via her address which will be broadcast on our website:”

Bachmann is the founder and chair of the Tea Party Caucus in Congress, which she started this past July.  The Tea Party Express heralded Bachmann as a “hero” during the 2010 election.

A source close to Bachmann first hinted at her presidential ambitions to ABC News earlier this month and Bachmann is slated to take the tea party message to Iowa in a speech she’s set to a deliver Friday night at a reception in Des Moines sponsored by Iowans for Tax Relief.
