Trump’s new campaign manager, who served as chief strategist for the Republican presidential primary campaign and now is a top adviser on the campaign, is hiring a top aide for his effort to boost his agenda.
Brian Cobb, the former chief of staff for Florida Gov.
Jeb Bush, is expected to serve as the campaign’s executive director, a position that is currently filled by Ben Carson, the retired neurosurgeon.
Cobb has worked for the Trump campaign since 2014, and he is known for his advocacy on behalf of the Republican nominee during the primary campaign.
He has also been credited with helping shape Trump’s early-voting strategy and helping with his push to hire more women to work in the campaign.
Carson, meanwhile, has been a central player in the Republican Party since his unsuccessful bid for the White House in 2016.
Carson was a surrogate for Trump’s presidential campaign and has served as a paid consultant for the campaign for more than a year.
Calls to Carson’s campaign were not immediately returned.
