Kellyanne Elizabeth Conway has been reportedly selected as the new campaign manager for the Trump campaign. Kellyanne is one of my former students at GW Law where she also served as an adjunct professor. It is a huge responsibility and Trump supporters should be highly encouraged by her selection. She is smart, resourceful, and very disciplined. Just what the Trump campaign needs at this critical time. She also now have the distinction of being the first female to head a GOP campaign for president.
Like your humble host, Kellyanne is actually half Irish and half Italian with an Irish name. She is one of a long legacy of GW grads in politics on both the Democratic and Republican side as well as third parties. We are proud of the wide range of political activities and affiliations of our graduates. Kellyanne was the president and CEO of The Polling Company as well as a regular television commentator.
She received her B.A. in Political Science from Trinity College and her J.D. from George Washington University Law Center. She also is a former judicial clerk.
She is a Jersey native and has four children with her husband, George T. Conway III, a partner at the law firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz. Unfortunately, George missed out on the GW law education but he seems to have been able to get by without it.
