Rep. Michele Bachmann has selected high-profile political strategist Ed Rollins to run her presidential campaign, two sources close to Bachmann told CBS.
In 2007, Rollins was the national campaign chairman and senior adviser for Mike Huckabee’s presidential run. But according to Fox News, Rollins is most most famous for directing Ronald Reagan’s 1984 re-election campaign where he helped the former president carry 49 states.
“I’ve been in a lot of campaigns, but I’ve also always gone in the government,” Rollins said in a Jan. 2008 interview with Portfolio.com. ”I understand public policy. I understand the consequences of public policy, the good parts and bad parts.”
Bachmann is expected to announce her candidacy later this month in Iowa.
According to CBS, Rollins joins a staff that includes Brett O’Donnell, who advised George W. Bush and John McCain and is considered the best debate coach in politics. The team also includes Bob Heckman, who is prominent in the conservative movement.
