“I am honored to have his advice. I speak with him often. He’s a wonderful adviser,” Walsh said of Conway during an interview Saturday with CNN’s Fredricka Whitfield. “As far as any formal role with our campaign, I would only be so lucky as to have somebody like George Conway involved.”
Walsh did not say whether Conway would be formally joining his campaign.
Conway told Walsh he would think about the offer, but did not commit to anything, the Times reported, citing two people familiar with the conversation.
If he were to join the Walsh campaign, Conway would be actively campaigning against his wife’s boss.
Walsh on Saturday refused to discuss the dynamic between the Conways.
“I know George Conway, and I speak to George Conway often, and he is genuinely and I mean frightened for where this country is going under Trump,” Walsh said. “That’s all we focus on, and I’m indebted to have his help and advice. He truly is a great American.”
Conway has not responded to CNN’s several recent requests for comment regarding his advising of Walsh and whether he would be joining the campaign.
In an interview last month with the Times, Conway said, “I think Walsh’s plan to attack Trump for his dishonesty, amorality, instability and incompetence is absolutely the right approach, and I’ll do whatever I can to help.”
He declined to tell the Times whether he’d sign on to Walsh’s campaign.
