I am pleased to announce that Bill Stepien has been promoted to the role of Trump Campaign Manager. Brad Parscale, who has been with me for a very long time and has led our tremendous digital and data strategies, will remain in that role, while being a Senior Advisor to the campaign. Both were heavily involved in our historic 2016 win, and I look forward to having a big and very important second win together. This one should be a lot easier as our poll numbers are rising fast, the economy is getting better, vaccines and therapeutics will soon be on the way, and Americans want safe streets and communities!
Stepien spent much of his political career in New Jersey, spending more than ten years there and working on various politicians’ campaigns, according to Politico.
Stepien was a former top adviser to Chris Christie when he was the governor of New Jersey, Politico reported. In his role with Christie, Stepien became well-known for helping Christie through “Bridgegate”, a scandal which it was alleged that Christie closed lanes at the George Washington Bridge in 2013 for political revenge.
Politico reported that David Wildstein, the mastermind who caused traffic jams according to transcripts from a criminal trial, said that Stepien knew about his plan before it was implemented. “Mr. Stepien asked about what story we were going to use, and I told Mr. Stepien we were going to use the cover of a traffic study,” Wildstein said.
However, Stepien has vehemently denied any such knowledge or involvement. In 2014, Christie cut ties with Stepien and Stepien faded from the public consciousness before he got involved in Trump’s campaign.
