In a joint statement Wednesday, the Republican National Committee and Donald Trump’s campaign announced that Trump’s delegate manager, Ed Brookover, will move to a new role as a liaison between the two entities.

“I’m thrilled to welcome Ed back to the RNC,” added RNC chief of staff Katie Walsh. “Ed’s decades of experience and depth of knowledge is a perfect fit for the RNC and the campaign.”

Brookover has previously worked in the RNC, the National Republican Senatorial Committee and the National Republican Congressional Committee. Before joining the Trump campaign, he was campaign manager for Ben Carson’s ill-fated GOP presidential bid.

On Wednesday, The Washington Post reported that another former Trump adviser, who was ousted after about six weeks, had been hired by the RNC.
