The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) announced Wednesday that it’s hiring Steve Schmidt, a former top strategist on Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) 2008 presidential campaign, to help shift the Republican Party’s attitude on marriage equality. 

In a statement announcing the hire, the ACLU said that Schmidt’s role will be “to help spearhead the campaign to strike down state-based laws prohibiting same-sex marriage.”

Schmidt is currently an analyst for MSNBC.
