The Trump campaign announced Tuesday that it promoted former White House political director Bill Stepien as its deputy campaign manager.
Why it matters: It's a sign the campaign is looking to strengthen its team with a key political veteran heading into the homestretch of the 2020 presidential election.
- Stephanie Alexander, who had been regional political director for the campaign's fundraising committee, was also promoted to chief of staff.
- Stepien has been a senior political adviser for the campaign since he left the White House in December 2018.
- The additions will add "seasoned and steady people on our leadership team," campaign manager Bill Parscale said in a news release.
