Donald Trump said Wednesday that Rick Wiley, a longtime political strategist who was the campaign manager for former rival Scott Walker, is now his national campaign director.

Wiley, who once worked for the Wisconsin Republican Party, will head Trump's statewide field operations, the developer said.

He is the former political director for the Republican National Committee, overseeing the organization's $178 million budget in 2012 and working on Mitt Romney's campaign in 2012, The Washington Post reports.

Wiley also worked on President George W. Bush's re-election bid in 2oo4 and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani's run four years later.

"Rick is a seasoned political expert with a very successful career in winning elections," Trump said in a statement. "He brings decades of experience, and his deep ties to political leaders and activists across the country will be a tremendous asset as we enter the final phase of securing the nomination."

Wiley said that "voters are frustrated with the political status quo in our country and are hungry for an outsider to shake up Washington.

"Donald Trump has energized millions of hard-working people across the country with his no-nonsense straight talk and will bring his record of success to tackle the real problems that face our nation."
