Former Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh announced he will be joining the Heritage Foundation as well as launching his own public affairs firm. Murtaugh is joining the Heritage Foundation as a visiting fellow for communications and as a contributor for the foundation’s publication.
Fox News reports:
“I have known Tim for over 20 years. As a former reporter, state capitol bureau chief, and presidential campaign communications director, he is one of the best communicators in the business,” Heritage Foundation President Kay C. James told Fox News.
James told Fox News that Murtaugh’s role will be “to advise the Heritage team on new ways to communicate our critical policy solutions to the American people, which is key to getting their elected representatives to buy in.”
“And his decades in government, politics, and reporting, together with his sharp wit, will provide a wealth of insight to his Daily Signal commentary that I know our subscribers will enjoy,” James said.
“The Heritage Foundation has been driving conservative policymaking and steadfastly defending our principles for generations and it is a high honor to join such a respected group of thought leaders,” Murtaugh told Fox News. “I look forward to working together as we continue to fight for the ideals that made this country great. I thank Kay James and everyone at Heritage for this incredible opportunity.”
Murtaugh joins other Trump administration officials like former Vice President Mike Pence and Mark Morgan who have also accepted positions with the Heritage Foundation.
