Bay Buchanan    

Real Estate Agent, Author, Political Analyst & Former U.S. Treasurer

Angela "Bay" Buchanan began her political career as the national Treasurer of Ronald Reagan's presidential campaigns in 1980 and 1984. This position catapulted her into a distinguished career beginning in 1981 when President Reagan appointed her to be Treasurer of the United States. At the age of 32, she was the youngest person to hold that position since it was established in 1775.

Buchanan served as the campaign chairman for all three of her brother Pat Buchanan's presidential campaigns. In 2008, she served as a senior advisor to Mitt Romney. From September 1996 through August 1999, she co-anchored "Equal Time," a political talk show initially on CNBC, then on MSNBC. In addition, she worked as a political analyst for "Good Morning America" throughout the general election in 1992. From 1996 to 1997, Buchanan hosted a two-hour radio talk show program that covered current events. In the summer of 1996, George magazine recognized her as one of the top 20 political women in the nation. The Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute named Bay Buchanan the 2007 Woman of the Year.

Currently, Buchanan is a political analyst who is often seen on CBS's Morning Show, CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News. She writes a regular column for Human Events Online, is the president of The American Cause, an educational foundation dedicated to advancing traditional conservative issues, and is co-chairman of Team America. Buchanan has authored two books: The first, "The Extreme Makeover of Hillary (Rodham) Clinton," in which she writes about Hillary Clinton, was published in 2007; her second book, "Bay and Her Boys," deals with her experiences as a single mom and was published in 2012. Buchanan also works as a real estate agent with McEnearney Associates.
