Global investment banking firm Goldman Sachs has hired a top official from President Trump's winning 2016 campaign as a lobbyist for the Trump administration, according to a Politico report.

David Urban, a longtime Republican operative, joined the campaign in April 2016 to help run operations in Pennsylvania, where Trump narrowly won.

Urban previously worked as the chief of staff for the late Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Pa.).

Urban is an Army veteran who has also worked in the past as a lobbyist for American Continental Group.

In November, CNN reported that Urban was in the running to replace Reince Priebus as Republican National Committee chairman, although the position eventually went to Ronna Romney McDaniel.
