She’s a hero to millions of tea-party Americans, and a villain to the media elite (Newsweek’s cover branded her “The Queen of Rage”), but Michele Bachmann has become one of America’s most compelling political personalities. And today only, WND readers can get the former Minnesota congresswoman and GOP presidential candidate’s inspiring book, “Core of Conviction: My Story,” for only $4.95 – an astonishing $22 discount off the normal $26.95 price!

Despite all the magazine covers, cable television stories and presidential debates, most people don’t know who Michele Bachmann really is, where she comes from, or what she believes. But now, in this fascinating memoir, she tells it all.

Bachmann wasn’t the type of kid who started dreaming about Congress and the White House in elementary school. She grew up in Iowa and Minnesota as a typical Midwestern girl, grounded by her family and faith. She was raised to believe in the American dream, that anyone could succeed if they worked hard and took advantage of this country’s boundless opportunities.

She followed her dreams to college and law school, pursued a career as a federal tax attorney, started a successful business with her loving husband, raised five great kids and (over time) 23 foster children! By her early forties she was very happy as a full-time mom and homemaker and was a leading education reform advocate in Minnesota.

But then – she became what she calls “an accidental politician.”

The political insiders who ran Minnesota held a one-party line – Al Franken-style liberalism. Bachmann grew especially concerned about a state-mandated education curriculum stressing political correctness over academic excellence. She started making calls, writing letters and recruiting others to act. When her state senator, an entrenched insider, refused to listen, someone had to challenge him for his seat. No one else volunteered, so Bachmann jumped in – and won.

That was the start of an amazing journey from obscurity to the state senate, to the U.S. Congress, to a campaign for president of the United States. Along the way her style has been consistent: She says what she means and she follows through with action. In other words, she is the rare political figure who actually fights for her beliefs. She speaks from the heart, with common sense, about limited government, the sanctity of life and marriage, the power of free enterprise and the need to confront America’s enemies. She also talks about – and exemplifies – putting principles above partisanship, even if that means ruffling the feathers of the Republican elite.

As Bachmann puts it, the Republican coalition is traditionally a “three-legged stool” – economic conservatives, social conservatives, and national security conservatives. Like Ronald Reagan, she represents all three groups. In addition, as founder of the congressional Tea Party Caucus, Bachmann considers the tea party the dynamic fourth leg of the coalition, in support of a return to constitutional conservatism.

Bachmann announced her candidacy for president on June 26, 2011, in her hometown of Waterloo, Iowa. She was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives from Minnesota in 2006 and reelected in 2008 and 2010. Bachmann serves on the Financial Services Committee and the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

“Core of Conviction” will show why Michele Bachmann believes ordinary people can take on the establishment and win. “Armed with values and faith, supported by family and fellow citizens, together we can do much,” she says. “We can secure what people are yearning for – the chance to take our country back.”
