Have US presidents historically used staff from their campaign or people that explicitly campaigned for them in their cabinet staff?
For example, Steve Bannon, Donald Trump's campaign CEO, was appointed to a position, as was the head of the Republican National Committee. Rudy Giuliani, who campaigned for Trump, hasn't been appointed to a position but has been speculated for several positions. Chris Christie, who was also a political ally during the campaign, was originally set to lead his transition team and possibly receive an appointment as well, but that was changed after some of his former staff were convicted in a scandal.
I don't know enough about the transitions to other presidents. Are these types of political appointments common for a US President? I would expect a president to use people from his or her own party, but am not sure if it's common to actually use people from the candidate's campaign.
