Outside Trump group hires Brian Walsh

America First Policies has named Brian O. Walsh, a partner at RedPrint Strategy and former president of the American Action Network and Congressional Leadership Fund, as its new president.

Walsh told Axios he was "honored to have the opportunity" to work with the group to have a "strong presence in the policy debate" on administration priorities such as tax and health care reform. Politico's Alex Isenstadt had it first.

Walsh will join former White House deputy chief of staff Katie Walsh, who departed the Trump administration late last month to give "badly needed air cover for the President's agenda."

Background: America First Policies is led by longtime figures like former Pence advisers Nick Ayers (chairman of the board) and Marty Obst, in addition to Trumpworld figures Brad Parscale and Katrina Pierson. David Bossie and Rick Gates, the other founders of the group, have already departed.
