Republican campaign strategist Ed Rollins, best known for overseeing President Ronald Reagan’s 1984 re-election romp, has joined U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann‘s potential presidential campaign. Most recently, Rollins served as chairman of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee‘s 2008 presidential bid.
Rollins told The Hill that he’ll be working exclusively for Bachmann as she mulls a longshot bid for the GOP nomination. “It’s totally premature to say I’m running it or not running it,” he said of her campaign.
Bachmann’s chief of staff in her congressional office, Andy Parrish, recently joined her campaign team as a top advisor. Her husband, Marcus Bachmann, is also expected to play a key role in the campaign.
