GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump has made a major move in anticipation for a potential contested convention. Trump has hired veteran political strategist Paul Manafort who managed the convention floor for former presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush!

In his new role, Manafort will oversee all the functions related to the nomination process, from courting delegates and assisting in getting them elected at state conventions to the nuts and bolts of preparing for a floor fight at the national convention in Cleveland in July, The Hill reports.

Manafort’s promotion to convention manager comes only one week after Trump hired the veteran GOP strategist to lead his delegate efforts.

In his new role, Manafort will oversee all the functions related to the nomination process, from courting delegates and assisting in getting them elected at state conventions to the nuts and bolts of preparing for a floor fight at the national convention in Cleveland in July.

“The nomination process has reached a point that requires someone familiar with the complexities involved in the final stages,” Trump said in a statement. “I am organizing these responsibilities under someone who has done this job successfully in many campaigns.”

Manafort managed the convention floor for former President Gerald Ford, who defeated Ronald Reagan at an open convention in 1976. He later managed the convention floor for Reagan in 1980, George H.W. Bush in 1988 and Bob Dole in 1996.

Manafort will also lead Trump’s outreach to Republicans in Washington, D.C. The Trump campaign is opening an office in the nation’s capital next week, as he seeks to make inroads with a GOP establishment that has been skeptical, and in some cases outright hostile, to their party’s front-runner.

Conservative Tribune reports that there’s only one problem that remains, and that happens to be campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, a temperamental fellow with comparatively little political experience who reportedly resents his new found elder’s influence over Trump.

My colleague V Saxena at CT adds that, putting the internal beefs aside, this new hire bodes well for the front-runner, who has become increasing unlikely to secure the 1,237 delegates needed for him to automatically designate himself the GOP nominee prior to July’s Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

With the odds of a brokered convention rising so rapidly, Trump must begin prepping now, lest his chief rival, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, “steal” all his delegates away from him.

Frankly, he should have hired Manafort several months ago, but later is better than never. And given the strategist’s impressive credentials, Trump may still have a legitimate chance at setting himself up for a win at the convention.

VOTE FOR TRUMP! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

God Bless.
