Donald Trump Has Hired Serious Strategists To Help His Presidential Campaign

Donald Trump's presidential announcement may be drawing snickers, but he's hired a few serious strategists.

Former Federal Elections Commission Chairman Don McGahn is on board and helped Trump set up the legal framework of his campaign.

Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowksi, is a New Hampshire-based veteran of the Koch brothers-backed Americans for Prosperity. Chuck Laudner, who helped Rick Santorum win the 2012 Iowa GOP caucus, is running his Hawkeye State efforts.

Former South Carolina House Majority Leader James Merrill is an adviser.

“He's actually hired some serious staffers,” said GOP strategist Ford O’Connell.

Trump says he’ll self-fund his campaign.

“You're going to be well taken care of working for him. As an operative that's an attractive thing,” said O’Connell.
