Washington, D.C. – Fresh off her Iowa Straw Poll win, Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann announced today the Team Bachmann campaign is executing a planned restructuring strategy and expanding its focus on winning the Iowa Caucuses and early primary states. Due to health reasons, Ed Rollins will move from his demanding role as Campaign Manager to Senior Advisor.
“In less than 50 days and with fewer resources than other campaigns, Ed was the architect that led our campaign to a historic victory in Iowa,” Bachmann said. “I am grateful for his guidance and leadership, and fortunate to retain his valuable advice even though his health no longer permits him to oversee the day-to-day operations of the campaign.”
As part of the restructuring strategy, current campaign strategist Keith Nahigian will assume the role of interim Campaign Manager.
“Keith has played a vital role in the success we have had to date and I’m confident he can lead us to a strong finish in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and across the country,” Bachmann said.
