5 facts about Trump's campaign manager Kellyanne Conway


Kellyanne Conway is GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump's third campaign manager, and the first woman to lead a GOP presidential campaign.

Trump hired Conway in June as an adviser, and she was promoted to campaign manager in August.

She has appeared on every major TV network, presenting Trump's message to the public. She often defends his remarks, but as she told CNN recently, her role is to explain Trump's "positions on issues, why he's running for president and why people should vote for him."

Conway, an established pollster, has worked with many other Republicans in the past. Here's a little more about her, before she joined the Trump campaign.

Conway is the co-author of "What Women Really Want: How American Women Are Quietly Erasing Political, Racial, Class, and Religious Lines to Change the Way We Live," published in 2005. She and Democratic political strategist Celinda Lake, the book's other author, "had found themselves on opposite sides of some of the country's most polarizing debates," the preface of their book reads, but the two collaborated to try to answer the question of what women want in America.
