Donald Trump campaign names Ohio team


The Donald Trump-Mike Pence campaign is getting its Ohio organization up and running for the fall election.

Polls continue to show Ohio as one of the most competitive states, one that no Republican has ever lost and been able to win the White House.

 

“We have assembled an all-star team that is building out our campaign’s ground game in every corner of the state.  We are committed to taking Mr. Trump’s message to all Ohioans, and turning the enthusiasm of this grassroots movement into votes in November,” said Bob Paduchik, Trump’s Ohio State director, in announcing the senior members of the Ohio campaign team.

Paduchik ran George W. Bush's successful campaigns in Ohio in 2000 and 2004.

Kettering Vice Mayor Rob Scott will serve as deputy state director. Scott served as the state director during this year's primary election. Scott also founded the Dayton Tea Party.

Seth Unger will serve as Ohio communications director. For the last five years Unger served as senior policy advisor and communications director for Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel.

John Roscoe will serve as director of coordinated campaigns for Trump Pence Victory and the Ohio Republican Party.  In 2014, Roscoe managed the campaign for Mandel. During the 2012 election, Roscoe served as deputy state director for Mitt Romney's campaign.

Clayton Henson will serve as the director of coalitions for Trump Pence Victory campaign.  Henson has worked in Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted's office and on Husted's 2014 re-election campaign.
