Senator Rand Paul has hired Chip Englander as his campaign manager, CBS News’ Gilad Thaler confirmed Tuesday evening, after the Washington Post first reported the move.

Paul spokeswoman Eleanor May said in an email, “Chip has joined Team Rand and will serve as the campaign manager” if Paul chooses to run in 2016. The announcement came just before the senator’s trip to New Hampshire Wednesday, where Paul has a schedule packed with events like a diner meeting with legislative leaders, a Second Amendment supporter event, a drop-by at the Londonderry Fish & Game Club, and other meetings with key figures in New Hampshire presidential politics.

Englander just finished a job as campaign manager, having run newly-elected Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner’s campaign, and he is a senior adviser to Rauner’s transition committee.
