As other presidential campaigns are scaling back, GOP frontrunner Donald Trump is unveiling three new state directors in Georgia, Ohio and Oklahoma.

Brandon Phillips is now the new state director for the Trump campaign in Georgia. Rob Scott is the state director in Ohio, and Stephanie Milligan is the Oklahoma state director.

“While other candidates are being forced to scale back on their staffs or consider dropping out of the race, we are assembling an extensive campaign team to harness the tremendous enthusiasm we are receiving from proud Americans across the country,” Trump said in a press release Monday. “I will secure our border, take care of our veterans, and bring jobs back from overseas. We will continue to grow our incredible team and share my vision to Make America Great Again!”

Phillips – the new state director in Georgia – has more than 10 years of experience working for local, state and federal campaigns – including working for Mitt Romney in 2008 as a state director during his campaign. He also serves on the GA GOP State Committee.

Scott, the new state director for Ohio for the Trump campaign, grew up in Ohio and is a practicing attorney and adjunct instructor. He also has a weekly column in the Dayton City Paper. “Scott is the former Chairman of the Montgomery County Republican Party and the founder of the Dayton Tea Party,” states Trump’s campaign press release. “He has served on the ballot committee for a statewide initiative to end Ohio’s estate tax, and has worked on numerous statewide campaigns and local races.”

Oklahoma’s state director, Milligan, is a political consultant and has experience working alongside the Oklahoma Republican Party. She also served as Chairwoman of the Oklahoma Federation of Young Republicans.

The Trump campaign also has teams in at least ten other states including: Alabama, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.
