Michael Bennet Challenger Gino Campana Adds Kellyanne Conway As Senior Advisor


One of the challengers to Sen. Michael Bennet for one of Colorado’s Senate seats is adding a well-known name to his campaign. Gino Campana has announced that Kellyanne Conway has joined the campaign as a senior advisor.

Campana is one of several Republican challengers to Bennet, the Democratic senior senator who currently holds the seat and is running for re-election in November. Conway served as former President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign manager and has been one of his closest counselors. Conway also became the first woman to successfully run a presidential campaign in 2016 when Trump won.

“I am proud to have Kellyanne on our team,” Campana said in a tweeted statement. “She brings unrivaled experience and expertise to this race.”
