Reuters exclusively reports Macron’s secret campaign team points to conservative battle ahead

Reuters exclusively reported that French President Emmanuel Macron is building an election campaign machine stacked with former conservative insiders, because he has realized he needs to win over more center-right voters to secure a second term next year. While Macron has not declared his candidacy, Reuters sources said the campaign team was taking shape, with one-time members of former center-right President Nicolas Sarkozy’s party among those who will shape the campaign. The prominent role given to ex-Sarkozy loyalists gives clues to the policies they will run within a campaign that will see a focus on immigration and identity, but also the economy and purchasing power at a time of surging energy prices.
