Former Hall County Commissioner Ashley Bell has been tapped to be the top strategist and national director of African-American political engagement for the Republican National Convention according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle.
The former president of the College Democrats of America recanted his Democratic allegiance in 2010 has had quite the meteoric rise in Republican politics. He has been surrogate speakers for Newt Gingrich in 2012 and Jack Kingston in 2014. Most recently, he has taken on the challenge of defending the Trump campaign and encourage African-Americans to vote for Trump and the Republican ticket in November.
So, Mr. Bell will go to Washington with a monumental task ahead and much luck needed. Good luck, Ashley.
