Bachmann Book Plays Up Her Past Political Rebounds

Amazon.com

ST. PAUL  (AP) – GOP presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann describes in her new memoir previous near-ends to her political career.

The stories end with a sudden rebound. That’s something the Minnesota congresswoman could use now as she fights to rescue her once-soaring campaign. Bachmann has gone from a top GOP contender as recently as August to a blip in the race.

“Core of Conviction” is set for official release Monday, six weeks before Iowa voters open the presidential nominating contest.

She writes that after a 1999 school board loss she resolved “not to risk embarrassing myself” with future political runs. But she ran for a different office the next year and won.

In her closing chapter, Bachmann says her key to victory this time is to stick by her conservative principles.
