Pennsylvania Republican gubernatorial nominee and state Sen. Doug Mastriano announced the addition of a Trump-world star to his general election campaign team Monday.

Jenna Ellis, who became a prominent member of the legal team that, both in and outside courtrooms, tried to put a legal veneer on former President Donald J. Trump’s claims that election fraud denied him a second-term in office in late 2020, has been named a senior legal adviser to Mastriano’s 2022 gubernatorial campaign.
