San Antonio 'Digital Guru' To Head Up Trump Campaign

Brad Parscale Twitter Page

Donald Trump's campaign has announced San Antonio digital web design giant Brad Parscale will lead re-election efforts in 2020.

Parscale is no stranger to politics. During the 2016 presidential election, he headed up Trump’s digital marketing campaign.

Trump’s son-in-law and chief campaign advisor Jared Kushner announced the change in a news release in which Kushner said Parscale's leadership and expertise will help build a best in class campaign.  

In the meantime, the Trump campaign says it plans to stay active during the 2018 midterm election. Parscale and members of the Trump family have endorsed several Republican candidates ahead of the Texas primary election, which includes former Bexar County Republican Party chair Robert Stovall, who is running in the open Congressional District 21 race and incumbent General Land Commissioner George P. Bush’s primary election campaign.

Parscale did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the campaign’s announcement.
