Trump Names Seasoned Operative as Campaign's Political Chief

By    |   Thursday, 30 July 2015 11:45 AM

Real estate mogul Donald Trump has tapped seasoned political operative Michael Glassner to serve as the national political director to Trump’s presidential campaign, which has rocketed to the top of the polls in recent weeks.

Glassner has some 30 years of experience working on national campaigns, including key positions in the presidential campaigns of Kansas Sen. Bob Dole in 1988 and 1996, first as an aide and later as a top adviser. He also worked as a senior adviser for the Iowa operation of the 2000 Bush-Cheney campaign and as director of vice presidential operations for the McCain-Palin ticket in 2008, according to a news release put out by Trump’s campaign.

CNN reports that Glassner also served as a chief of staff for former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's political action committee.

Glassner’s responsibilities will include developing and implementing a national political plan and overseeing national strategic planning and political operations on behalf of Donald J. Trump for President.

"In addition to our great success in all the recent national polls, we have built a great team, ultimately driven by my message to Make America Great Again and Mr. Glassner will certainly be an asset to us as we further cement our dominance in the 2016 GOP field," Trump said.

Glassner, in the news release, said he was honored to work with Trump, who he characterized as defining the American success story.

"Mr. Trump has set the standards of excellence in many arenas, including real estate, sports, and entertainment — and now, in American politics," said Glassner. "As the newest member of the Trump national campaign team, I look forward to doing my part to Make America Great Again."
