Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign announced on Thursday the hiring of Somerset County’s Michael Glassner as national political director.

“Michael is responsible for developing and implementing a national political plan and will oversee strategic planning operations nationwide on behalf of Donald J. Trump for President,” Trump’s campaign said in a statement.

Glassner served as a top aide to Sarah Palin on Sen. John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign and ran Patriot Prosperity PAC, which contributed to Rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s CD9 campaign vs U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell in ’12.

Trump is the father-in-law of Jared Kushner, the publisher of Observer Media.
