Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-Minn.) got one of Speaker John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) limited allotment of tickets to this week’s Supreme Court oral arguments on the federal healthcare law.
Bachmann’s ticket enables her to sit in on Wednesday’s arguments. She made repeal of President Obama’s signature law a key element of her short-lived presidential campaign.
According to spokesman Michael Steel, Boehner conferred with House committee chairmen about how to dole out the handful of seat tickets he got. Steel would not reveal how many tickets he got.
Besides Bachmann, Boehner gave a ticket to Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Colo.) for Tuesday’s arguments.
