Walker hires foreign, domestic policy advisers

Wednesday, February 18, 2015

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Less than a week after returning from a London trade mission where he refused to answer questions about foreign policy, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has hired foreign and domestic policy advisers.

A spokeswoman for Walker's political committee Our American Revival said Wednesday that he hired Mike Gallagher to advise on international issues and Kristin Jackson to work on domestic policies.

The moves were announced the same day that Walker hired staff to work in the early primary state of New Hampshire as he continues to put pieces in place for a likely presidential run.

Gallagher is a staff member for the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Jackson previously worked as an aide to former Rep. Connie Mack, R-Fla., and most recently worked for a Washington-based public relations and communications firm.
