Brad Parscale: Trump names 2020 election campaign chief
February 27, 2018 4:20 pm
US President Donald Trump has picked one of his political strategists as campaign manager for his 2020 re-election campaign.
The Trump Organization hired Brad Parscale in 2011 as a digital guru.
He was asked in 2015 to create a website for Mr Trump’s exploratory White House bid and a year later became the campaign’s digital director.
This is thought to be the earliest any incumbent US president has officially declared his re-election campaign.
There are 979 days to go until the 2020 election. President Barack Obama announced his re-election plans 582 days before his 2012 bid for a second term.
