Senior Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway may lead an outside group aimed at providing Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpJustice Department preparing for Mueller report as soon as next week: reports Smollett lawyers declare 'Empire' star innocent Pelosi asks members to support resolution against emergency declaration MORE's administration with support to achieve political and policy goals, the Washington Post reported Monday night. 


Conway, who served as Trump's third and final campaign manager, told the Post the group will provide the president-elect with a "surround-sound super structure" to bolster his agenda. 

She added that she is still deciding between joining Trump in the White House or leading the organization. 

It will be important for someone "close to the president" to run the organization, Conway told the Post. 

“He’s going to be a very active president who wants to accomplish things quickly. We want to honor that by being ready," she said, adding that she and her family are considering relocating to D.C. 

One of the first priorities for the group would be to defend Trump's Cabinet nominees if Democrats try to block confirmations. 

The group could work to help Republicans win more House and Senate seats in the 2018 midterm elections. 

“We’re fighting and planning how to continue this seismic change and the Trump revolution into the next election, and you’ve got the Democrats literally rehiring the same people who failed them,” Conway said, referring to Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who recently was reelected to her leadership position in the House.
