WASHINGTON – Rep. Michele Bachmann will officially launch her campaign for president next Monday in Iowa, the Huffington Post has learned.

Bachmann is set to announce the details of the event on Wednesday morning, Alice Stewart, a spokeswoman for the Minnesota Republican, told HuffPost. News about the Monday event did not come from Stewart or from Bachmann headquarters, but from sources with knowledge of the event.

Coming off her strong performance in last week's Republican primary debate in New Hampshire, Bachmann and her staff have kept a low profile, allowing the candidate to ride the wave of positive buzz into this week.

Bachmann is in position to perform well in the Hawkeye State given her strong conservative credentials, her dynamism on the stump and the fact that she was born in Iowa and lived there until her family moved to Minnesota when she was 12 years old.

She was born in Waterloo, a likely spot for her announcement.
