Daughter of Trump's Florida campaign chief gets White House gig

via @learyreports

Caroline Wiles, daughter of Jacksonville-based lobbyist and political consultant Susie Wiles, will serve as Donald Trump’s White House director of scheduling, the transition team announced this morning.

Wiles served in that role for the campaign since July 2016 and had done a similar job on Rick Scott’s 2010 gubernatorial campaign. She attended Flagler College.

Trump shook up his campaign in September by replacing Florida director Karen Giorno with Susie Wiles, who had been doing campaign communications from New York.
