WASHINGTON | Trump political aides shifting over to re-election campaign
WASHINGTON — White House political director Bill Stepien and deputy Justin Clark are leaving the administration to work on President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign.
Their plans were confirmed by two people with knowledge of the advisers’ thinking who weren’t authorized to speak publicly before an official announcement.
Stepien oversaw Trump’s midterm campaign push, which included a series of rallies intended to help limit GOP losses. Republicans kept control of the Senate after last month’s election, but lost their House majority, setting up a challenging two years for Trump under a divided Congress.
