A top adviser to Ron Paul and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has signed on with the American Crossroads super PAC — a move designed to increase input from conservative grass-roots supporters who have grown suspicious of the super PAC’s activities.
Trygve Olson, who advised Rand Paul in his 2010 Senate campaign and then moved over to the elder Paul’s 2012 presidential campaign, will serve as an adviser to American Crossroads on House and Senate races, Post Politics has learned. He will report to Crossroads political director Carl Forti.
“Crossroads has demonstrated their goal is to elect Republicans,” Olson said. “I’m in a unique position in that I’ve worked with establishment and grass-roots candidates, thereby adding a perspective that’s important.”
