America First Action super PAC announced Monday that former Small Business Administration (SBA) chief Linda McMahon will chair the organization’s 2020 re-election efforts.
McMahon served as part of President Donald Trump’s cabinet since February 2017 before stepping down this month to focus on the president’s re-election efforts. Under her stewardship, McMahon focused on rural development, championing women entrepreneurs, and military veterans. McMahon also helped improve the way the SBA connected small businesses to capital, counseling, and government contracts.
“I’m thrilled to be joining America First Action as its Chairman,” said McMahon in a statement Monday. “During my time at SBA, I traveled all over the country and experienced first-hand how the President’s economic policies are leading to increased business expansion, hiring, and wage increases. With all of President Trump’s historic accomplishments, it’s imperative we help him win another four years in office.”
McMahon will also engage in policy advocacy, communications, and rally millions of grassroot activists across the nation and serve as the chair of America First Policies, the group’s policy and think tank sister organization.
“Linda is an incredible talent, she has not only served in the highest levels of government but also brings a wealth of experience from the private sector as the former CEO of a multinational company,” said America First Action President Brian O. Walsh. “She’s been a tireless champion for the President, and is the perfect person to chair our organization as we prepare for the 2020 election.”
America First Action and Policies has consistently pushed for President Trump’s America First agenda, especially building a wall along America’s southern border.
In February, America First Policies released ads pressuring Rep. Matt Cartwright (D-PA), a Pennsylvania swing district, to back President Trump’s border wall.
