Michael Glassner, organizer of the president’s rallies, has been reassigned and Jeff DeWit, who served as Arizona chairman of Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, joins the 2020 staff as chief operating officer.
Just days before the June 20 rally in Tulsa, Parscale claimed the campaign had received more than 1 million requests for free tickets.
In March 2016, with DeWit, then the Arizona state treasurer, heading his campaign in the state, candidate Donald Trump won a solid victory in the Grand Canyon State, capturing nearly 46 percent of the vote in a field of three active Republican candidates – plus 11 withdrawn candidates who also received votes.
After taking office, Trump nominated DeWit to be NASA’s chief financial officer.
Glassner, who had been a Trump campaign official as far back as 2015, was expecting to be reassigned, a source told Axios.
