Trump Hires New Veteran Advisor Kevin Kellems

As both Donald Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and communications advisor Michael Caputo parted ways with the campaign on Monday, a new veteran advisor joined the team to oversee Trump surrogates.

Kevin Kellems was recently hired by the Trump campaign, according to the New York Times.

Mr. Kellems, who is based in Indiana, advised Newt Gingrich for a time during his 2012 presidential campaign. He also was the communications director for former Vice President Dick Cheney, and worked for Paul D. Wolfowitz, the former deputy secretary of defense who was a major proponent of the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Mr. Trump has made criticism of the Iraq war and of President George W. Bush’s administration central to his candidacy.

The campaign has relied heavily on television and radio pundits as campaign surrogates.

According to the New York Times, campaign officials were looking to expand the campaign’s communications team with experienced political communications staff.
