Kayleigh McEnany, formerly a political commentator working at CNN, will be the next spokesperson for the Republican National Committee (RNC).
Last week, McEnany tweeted a cryptic message, writing: “While I have enjoyed my time at CNN, I will be moving to a new role. Stay tuned next week!”
After showing up on President Trump’s Facebook page Monday morning, a statement released by the RNC clarifies McEnany’s next role. She will be the RNC’s national spokesperson for television and radio.
In a statement, RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel said, “Kayleigh will be an integral part of our Party’s ongoing commitment to promoting the Republican message to Americans across the country.” She continued, “Her wealth of experience will be invaluable to the RNC as we continue to support President Trump and build on our majorities in Congress as we head into 2018.”
McEnany, a 29-year-old Georgetown and Harvard Law School graduate, has interned for several politicians, including George W. Bush. Under the Bush administration, she worked in the Office of Media Affairs, where she wrote media briefings.
She began her television career as a producer for former Gov. Mike Huckabee’s (R-Ark.) Fox News’ program, “Huckabee.”
McEnany began as a paid contributor on CNN in 2016. While on CNN, McEnany was frequently asked about President Donald Trump, whom she supported during the 2016 presidential election. She continued to be an ardent supporter of the president throughout her time on CNN.
“I am excited to be joining the RNC at such an important and historic time in our country,” McEnany said in a separate statement. “I’m eager to talk about Republican ideas and values and have important discussions about issues affecting Americans across this country.”
