Aside from one minor gaffe (she called Angie’s, a local sub shob, “Subway”), Bachmann was poised and confident during her Jacksonville visit.

Bachmann had harsh words for the EPA, which she called the “job-killing agency of America.”

So this is what I would do. I would pass a mother of all repeal bills for education, get rid of all of the unfunded mandates that the federal government puts on our local schools — making it very difficult for schools to be effective. … I would have a very busy day, a very busy day. ‘Cause I first have to make a trip to the EPA and after that, I have to go to the Department of Education because I also have to shut the lights off and lock the doors over there, as well.

Bachmann will next stop in Poinciana for a town hall Saturday morning and end her tour of Florida at a GOP rally in Sarasota on Sunday.
