Bush, Reagan adviser helped write Bachmann autobiography

Jim Pinkerton, a former speechwriter and adviser for Presidents Bush (41) and Reagan, helped write Michele Bachmann’s finished, forthcoming autobiography, Politico reports.

Pinkerton is a Newsday columnist and a Fox News contributor, according to his biography from the New America Foundation, where he was a senior fellow until this summer. He was a senior adviser for Mike Huckabee’s 2008 presidential run.

Bachmann’s book, Core of Conviction, is due out on Nov. 21. The campaign has offered signed copies of the memoir to campaign donors.
