(PatrioticPost.com)- Former President Donald Trump has revealed who he has hired to run his campaign in Iowa, which will be the first presidential primary of 2024.
Marshall Moreau was tapped as the Trump team’s overall director for Iowa. He also worked on Republican Brenna Bird’s winning campaign for Iowa’s attorney general in the 2022 midterms.
The son of the famous Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, Eric Branstad, will again act as senior adviser for a third time working on Trump’s Iowa campaign. State Rep. Bobby Kaufmann, whose father was an Iowa GOP politician, Jeff Kaufmann, will act as an adviser.
Former Trump White House insider Alexander S. Latcham will act as the campaign’s early states director in Iowa, as well as in New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada. He also has experience on Trump’s Save America political action committee.
In addition to his role as a senior advisor in the Trump administration’s Commerce Department, Branstad worked on each of Obama’s previous two presidential campaigns in Iowa. As a Trump administration member, Latcham served as the White House Political Office’s Deputy Director.
Even while Trump has visited other crucial early presidential primary states, including South Carolina and New Hampshire, recent news has noted that the former president has been conspicuously missing from the state recently.
In South Carolina, he announced his leadership team last month. It comprises Republican Governor Henry McMaster and Democratic Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). According to Politico, Stephen Stepanek, a former chair of the New Hampshire Republican Party, would serve as a senior advisor to the former president of the state.
Politico reported in late January that Republicans who had worked on Trump’s previous campaigns were concerned about his lack of New Hampshire campaign infrastructure, while The Associated Press reported that several Republicans in Iowa had mentioned Trump’s geographic isolation from the state.
This happens as Nikki Haley, Trump’s U.S. ambassador to the UN, prepares her own campaign tour through Iowa later this week, the Washington Examiner noted.
Former Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., who have not yet formally thrown their hats in the ring, are poised to be in and around the Hawkeye State over the coming weeks.
Trump made his campaign official soon after the November elections.
When Trump last visited Iowa, it was to rally Iowa Republicans in Sioux City just before the midterm elections.
