Bachmann Book Plays Up Her Past Political Rebounds

ST. PAUL, Minn. (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.

    The only thing she really sticks to,is constant lying! How in the world did she get this far? So much hateful thoughts ,so little time.I think she not only is burning the candle from both ends,she must be doing incantations and a few eye of Newt things besides! Marcus has found his ideal companion,together they can change the way mental illness is defined!
