US President Donald Trump on Tuesday announced that he has appointed Brad Parscale as the campaign manager for his re-election committee for the 2020 polls.
A release on Trump’s website described Parscale as a “longtime digital marketing strategist” for the president “who has continued to lead digital strategies for the campaign and the Republican National Committee”.
His appointment comes months before the midterm elections scheduled for November, in which all 435 seats in the House of Representatives and 34 Senate seats will be contested.
Parscale’s immediate task will be to provide support to and endorse Republican candidates, and engage “Trump supporters in districts and states”.
His tasks will also include advanced planning for the 2020 campaign.
