Senior Adviser Ed Brookover was appointed to serve as a liaison between the Trump campaign and the RNC.
(Huff Post) – U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Monday fired senior adviser Ed Brookover, two sources close to his campaign said.
The sources did not say why Brookover was fired.
According to Politico, Brookover was not the only staffer who was dismissed. Jimmy Stracner, the campaign’s Western regional political director, was among at least two aides that were fired on Monday.
A statement from the Trump campaign confirmed Brookover had left, but did not mention Stracner.
“The campaign has parted ways with Ed, but we are thankful to him for his many contributions and appreciate his continued support,” the Trump campaign said in a statement.
Brookover did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
