Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann's 2012 presidential campaign announced Thursday it promoted Eric Woolson to manage the campaign in Iowa. Woolson helped run former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee's successful 2008 Iowa caucus campaign.
Woolson signed on with former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty's campaign in March. Woolson initially joined the Bachmann campaign in September, a few weeks after Pawlenty dropped out.
