Donald Trump’s presidential campaign is not only adding key staffers at the national level, it is beefing up its presence in Georgia. Brandon Phillips, Trump’s Georgia State Director, announced that Jennifer Hazelton will serve as Communications Director in Georgia, while Billy Kirkland will serve as the Senior Adviser for the Georgia Trump Pence campaign. Phillips issued the following statement:
We have assembled an all-star team dedicated to keeping Georgia in the Republican win column. We are committed to taking Mr. Trump’s message to all Georgians, and turning the enthusiasm of this grassroots movement into votes to win in November. Georgia voters understand that Hillary Clinton represents a third Obama term while the Trump-Pence campaign of tougher law enforcement, stopping illegal immigration and bringing back jobs is resonating strongly across the state. Voters are tired of the same old Washington corruption and back room deals and will vote for change in November.
Prior to joining the Trump campaign, Hazelton worked as Communications Director for Rep. Tom Graves, and has held journalist and producer positions at CNN and Fox News. Kirkland has over 15 years of campaign experience, most recently overseeing Senator David Perdue’s winning bid in 2014. Prior to that, Kirkland was the National Field Director for the Faith and Freedom Coalition.
