Ballard joins national GOP finance team


Brian Ballard, the prominent Tallahassee lobbyist who helped finance President Donald Trump's upstart campaign in Florida, has joined the national ranks of the Republican Party: On Monday, he was named one of the Republican National Committee's regional finance vice-chairmen.

Ballard chaired the Trump Victory efforts in Florida, vice-chaired the presidential inaugural committee and was a member of the transition's finance committee.


RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel appointed Ballard and several others to top finance positions.

"Together this team will employ their extraordinary talent and understanding of Americans across the country to maintain and build upon our unprecedented fundraising success," she said in a statement.
