Rob Johnson joined former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina’s campaign as a senior advisor.
Johnson was a consultant to former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who pulled out of the GOP presidential race earlier this year.
“I think Carly has a blueprint to take back our country and address serious challenges facing our nation. She’s a credible outsider with the experience to be president,” Johnson told the National Review.
Perry’s campaign manager, Jeff Miller, stated, “Great hire for Fiorina campaign. Rob is not just one of the smartest guys that I know, he is also one of the best guys I have ever known.”
Johnson was Newt Gingrich’s campaign manager in 2012 before going to work for Perry.
