“I am thrilled to announce this stellar group of advisors who have the experience and track-record of winning the toughest races we will need to unseat an incumbent Governor,” Mango said in a release announcing the team.
The senior advisors are Gen. (retired) Dan Allyn as Chief of Staff, John Brabender as Senior Advisor and Media Consultant, David Urban and Brian Nutt as Senior Political Advisors, Neil Newhouse as Senior Advisor and Pollster, and Nan McLaughlin as Senior Advisor and Finance Director.
Urban was the senior advisor for President Trump’s campaign during the 2016 campaign and is a U.S. Army veteran. Allyn is also an Army veteran, serving as the Vice Chief of Staff of the Army.
Mango, a veteran himself, has made veterans issues a central part of his campaign, launching a veterans coalition as his first coalition of the campaign.
“It is impossible to alienate my veteran background, because that is who I am and that is what half of my campaign is about. I am absolutely going to be hand in hand with our veterans,” Mango said after the launch event.
