Under his direction, Breitbart News smashed company records in July generating 192 million pageviews, 31 million unique visitors, and 89 million sessions.

Bannon’s track record makes him the perfect choice to help steer the Trump campaign to victory in November.

This also shows Donald Trump’s willingness to reach outside of the box and bring in nontraditional resources with successful track records to guide his campaign.
Truly, this is a leadership quality we have not seen in the GOP for years.

You gotta love the sound of this–

The Washington Post reported:

Donald Trump, following weeks of gnawing agitation over his advisers’ attempts to temper his style, moved late Tuesday to overhaul his struggling campaign by rebuffing those efforts and elevating two longtime associates who have encouraged his combative populism.

Stephen Bannon, a former banker who runs the influential conservative outlet Breitbart News and is known for his fiercely anti-establishment politics, has been named the Trump campaign’s chief executive. Kellyanne Conway, a veteran Republican pollster who has been close to Trump for years, will assume the role of campaign manager.

Two Trump campaign aides confirmed the staff’s reshuffle early Wednesday, requesting anonymity to discuss personnel changes without permission.

Trump issued a statement hours later. “I have known Steve and Kellyanne both for many years. They are extremely capable, highly qualified people who love to win and know how to win,” he said. “I believe we’re adding some of the best talents in politics, with the experience and expertise needed to defeat Hillary Clinton in November and continue to share my message and vision to Make America Great Again.”

The campaign played down the notion that Trump was reacting to the polls or saw his bid in crisis.

“These announcements come at a time of significant growth for Mr. Trump’s campaign, with the first major TV ad buy of the general election slated to start later this week and with additional top-flight operatives joining the movement on a near-daily basis,” the campaign said in the statement.

For the record – Steve Bannon is a personal friend and has ALWAYS treated me and my family with the utmost respect.
