Top Aide Exits Vivek Ramaswamy’s Presidential Campaign, Joins Trump’s 2024 Bid

Published on

In a significant twist, Brian Swensen, the national political director for Vivek Ramaswamy’s presidential campaign, has stepped down and embraced the ranks of Donald Trump’s White House campaign. The departure, highlighted by Tricia McLaughlin, a spokesperson for Ramaswamy, raised eyebrows, but she asserted that internal campaign issues were not the cause.

Swensen, who played a pivotal role in the early stages of the campaign, particularly in the critical state of New Hampshire, is now set to contribute his expertise to Trump’s campaign in Nevada. This move comes at a time when Ramaswamy’s bid for the 2024 presidential nomination has hit hurdles, struggling to gain significant traction in the polls.

Ramaswamy, known for his far-right stances and unwavering support for Trump, initially captured attention with his spirited debate performances. However, recent polls indicate a stagnation in his support, hovering around 5% among likely Republican primary voters nationally, a stark contrast to Trump’s commanding lead.

Tricia McLaughlin clarified that Swensen’s departure was unrelated to internal campaign problems but was influenced by the appointment of Mike Biundo, an experienced political operative, as Ramaswamy’s national political adviser. According to McLaughlin, this change rendered Swensen’s role in New Hampshire less relevant, emphasizing that his exit had been anticipated.
