(TheRedWire.com) – On Monday, former President Trump announced four key members of his campaign leadership team in Iowa. For the past few weeks, Trump has been spending his time focusing on New Hampshire and South Carolina, two of the early presidential primary states.
According to his announcement, Eric Branstad, who had played an advisory role both during Trump’s last two presidential campaigns and his time in office, along with state Rep. Bobby Kaufmann (R) will join Trump’s presidential campaign as senior advisers. Marshall Moreu has also joined as his state director, while Alex Latcham will be his early states director, focusing on South Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, and Iowa.
Latcham had previously worked with Trump as his deputy White House political director in the White House Political Office.
Trump recently issued a statement as part of his campaign in which he urged for the protection of Iowa’s First-in-the-Nation Caucuses, which Democrats are trying to change. In his campaign statement, he mentioned that they “will always be first with me.” He then touted some of his previous successes in the region, including the $28 billion in funding provided to farmers.
Trump’s campaign appointments were rather important, as many had pointed out that Trump did not have a presence in Iowa whereas he had spent quite some time in other early presidential primary states like South Carolina and New Hampshire.
His leadership team in South Carolina was announced last month and it includes Gov. Henry McMaster (R) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), with former New Hampshire GOP Chair Stephen Stepanek joining in a senior advisor role.
