Donald J. Trump Announces Multiple Key Hires in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada 

Trump Team Lands Former Perry Chair Iowa Conservative Sam Clovis 

(New York, NY) August 26, 2015 - Donald J. Trump today announced the addition of Iowa conservative Dr. Sam Clovis as national co-chair and senior policy advisor for the Donald J. Trump for President Campaign. Dr. Sam Clovis, Morningside College economics professor and popular conservative activist, will tap into his expansive expertise in economics, national security and international relations as a key member of Mr. Trump's national operation. As a veteran, he will be especially effective in shaping policies for his fellow veterans and military families, which will continue to be a cornerstone of Mr. Trump's campaign. 

Mr. Trump stated, "I am pleased to welcome Dr. Clovis to our team and am confident he will be a great asset in Iowa and around the country as we continue to lead all local and national polls and share my vision to Make America Great Again!" 

Dr. Clovis added, "I am humbled and honored to join the Trump team. As this campaign unfolds, voters will be able to see the differences between candidates based on the vision they have for America and the policies and ideas they deliver, and we will be leading the way." 

Mr. Trump also announced the addition of Charles Munoz as Nevada State Director. Charles will be responsible for overseeing the day to day operation in Nevada with extensive experience managing field staff and organizing grass roots activists statewide. 

Other new hires include Nancy Mace who will serve as State Coalitions Director in South Carolina, and James Epley who will serve as Upstate Regional Director also in South Carolina. 

Nancy brings fifteen years of experience both in business and campaigns such as those of Congressman (now Senator) Tim Scott, Congressman Mick Mulvaney, Congressman Tom Rice and several other elected officials. Nancy was the first female graduate of The Citadel, the military college of South Carolina. James comes to the campaign after serving as South Carolina Low Country Regional Director for Newt Gingrich in 2012 and brings with him twenty five years of experience in real estate development. A recent Monmouth University poll shows Mr. Trump with 30% in South Carolina. 

Mr. Trump also announced two additional staffers in the Granite State where he continues to lead the GOP Republican Primary field by a sizable margin, according to the latest Public Policy Poll showing him with 35%. Lisa Maciejowski Gambuzza has joined the campaign as office manager for the Manchester based operation and Jonathan W. Dimock of Newfields, New Hampshire will serve as a New Hampshire Field Representative.
