A top aide to Louisiana U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy has been tapped to join the communications team for President Donald Trump's re-election bid.
Matt Wolking has been Cassidy's communications director for the past year and a half, after previously serving as a communications aide to U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida.
“Being part of Dr. Cassidy’s staff has been a privilege and a pleasure. No one works harder for the people of Louisiana than he does, and it shows," Wolking said of his time in Cassidy's office.
The Trump campaign announced this week that Wolking will be in charge of an “aggressive rapid response team, refuting attacks and exposing the fake news media," The Washington Times reported.
I'm excited to join this team. A booming economy and record jobs, bigger paychecks for working families, American energy leadership, stopping Democrats' agenda of socialism, infanticide, and open borders – there's a lot at stake in 2020. #MAGA https://t.co/OktVS7YEyj— Matt Wolking (@MattWolking) March 6, 2019
Others announced to lead Trump re-election communications efforts ahead of 2020 include Zach Parson, who has worked in the White House, and Erin Perrine, who has been press secretary for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California.
Wollking has said he begins his work for the Trump campaign on March 18.
