Donald Trump has hired Rick Wiley, the former campaign manager for Scott Walker’s short-lived presidential campaign, to serve as his national political director.

“Rick is a seasoned political expert with a very successful career in winning elections,” Trump said in a statement. “He brings decades of experience, and his deep ties to political leaders and activists across the country will be a tremendous asset as we enter the final phase of securing the nomination.”

Wiley said: “Voters are frustrated with the political status quo in our country and are hungry for an outsider to shake up Washington. Donald Trump has energized millions of hard working people across the country with his no-nonsense straight talk and will bring his record of success to tackle the real problems that face our nation.”

Wiley previously worked as the national political director of the Republican National Committee. His hiring comes as Trump and RNC chairman Reince Priebus have sparred and the campaign is ramping up its efforts to secure delegates ahead of the party’s July convention.

    Donald continues to surprise. Lately it was Wisconsin, then Colorado. Mona Charen is correct in writing that Trump is unfit for the party nomination.

    Tired of hearing about “The Rules” and the “Playing the Ground Game” How about If I vote for my candidate, my candidate gets my vote” this whole “It’s a complicated Process” sucks. It is complicated because the RNC made it complicated and they made it complicated and they made it complicated to control the outcome and make my vote MEANINGLESS!! Bastards!

      Can we expect anything less from either party? They have created a “feudal lord” system within politics that is all as corrupt as the political system that the Funding Fathers ridded America of in 1776. It took less than 100 years for American government to be corrupted and taken over by traitors. We have a lot of work ahead to fix what is wrong with America. The original idea was pure genius, however the designers were way too naïve and failed to put the proper safeguards and firewalls in place to prevent what we have today. Somebody said it “absolute power, corrupts absolutely”. A total house cleaning all the way down to every government employee is desperately needed.

        Yes, in the beginning, there weren’t any Partys. The big shot, special interest, power crazy jerks somehow took control.
