Trump For President Campaign Appoints Two Arizona Republicans To Prominent Leadership Positions

Arizona State Treasurer Jeff DeWit Becomes National Chief Operating Officer, Rep. Phil Lovas Takes Helm as Arizona Campaign Chairman of Trump Campaign

PHOENIX – Today Chairman Robert Graham of the Arizona Republican Party cheered the announcement made by the Trump for President that two Republican elected officials were appointed to Trump for President campaign leadership positions.

Arizona State Treasurer Jeff DeWit was promoted from Arizona Campaign Chairman to Trump for President Chief Operating Officer, and Rep. Phil Lovas of Legislative District 22 was appointed as Arizona Campaign Chairman.

“I have been proud to support Mr. Trump for President since before his candidacy was announced and am confident that his leadership is what our country needs to Make America Great Again. It is truly an honor to volunteer my time to help the campaign; it is a sacrifice my family and I are willing to make for the good of our nation’s future. Over the next few months, I am looking forward to helping Mr. Trump win the Presidency and put our country back on the path to prosperity,” said Jeff DeWit in a statement released by the Trump campaign.

“It’s an honor to be chosen as the Arizona State Chairman for the Donald Trump campaign. Treasurer Jeff DeWit did a fantastic job and I wish him the best as the COO for the national campaign. We have a great team in place here and I look forward to working with them to keep Arizona in the Republican column and electing Donald Trump our next President of the United States,” said Arizona State Representative Phil Lovas.

“This is great news for Arizona and it really shows the talent we’ve been cultivating within the party and our state is being recognized,” said Arizona Republican Party Chairman Robert Graham. “Jeff DeWit is energetic, engaging, dedicated and loyal: he was the first statewide elected to endorse Donald Trump. And Rep. Phil Lovas, our new state chairman for the Trump for President campaign, is an experienced leader, talented organizer, and tireless advocate for all things Republican. Both of these fine men deserve these accolades and as state party chairman I have pledged every resource and every ounce of support we have to help Donald Trump and all our Republican nominees win in November.”
