Former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), who is a conservative hero, has a major announcement. She will be officially joining conservative businessman and GOP presidential nominee Donald J. Trump’s campaign.
Bachmann will help lead Trump’s Evangelical Executive Advisory Board, according to a recent Trump campaign statement.
The board will “provide advisory support to Mr. Trump on those issues important to Evangelicals and other people of the faith in America,” the campaign said in a statement.
The former House representative from Minnesota joins 20 others — including Jerry Falwell Jr. — on the board.
“The executive board members will convene on a regular basis,” the statement said.
The campaign added that certain members of the board were “solely responsible” for Trump’s private meeting with Christian leaders in New York City on Tuesday, but did not clarify which members those were.
Today at the gathering of evangelicals Trump was forthright, said he would support pro-life judges. Respectful, and warmly received.
