Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann let it be known Monday she has tapped well-known political strategist Ed Rollins to run her presidential campaign.

Rollins was Mike Hukabee’s national campaign director in 2008.  He came to prominence during the Reagan-Bush reelection campaign in 1984.

Bachmann is expected to officially announce her campaign very soon with an announcement from Waterloo, Iowa.

Rollins is the latest hire for Bachmann’s team, which already includes former George W. Bush and John McCain advisor Brett O’Donnell, Bob Heckman, and pollster Ed Goeas.
