          select the text object
          see that round point in the middle? move it to the point that will be
          the center of rotation.

          controlled method:

          Modify>Transform>Numerical Transform.
          Choose Rotate and set a number of degrees.

          eyeball method:

          Ctrl+T (calls the Transform method)
          move your cursor off of the object until the cursor changes to the
          rotate one...
          click and move in the direction you need.
          When you are where you want to be, double click inside the object's
          bounding box or simply deselect the object (Ctrl+D)

          note: Ctrl=Cmd for mac
