Republican strategist Ed Rollins will manage Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann's presidential campaign if she jumps in the race, a well-placed source has confirmed to Hotline on Call.
The move gives Bachmann a campaign veteran with experience working with dark-horse candidates. In 2008, Rollins helped former Gov. Mike Huckabee to an unexpected victory in Iowa. Bachmann is expected to announce her bid in Iowa later this month and is expected to invest most of her resources in the state.
Rollins also managed Ross Perot's independent campaign for president in 1992, and worked for Ronald Reagan's presidential campaign earlier in his career.
