What does the organizational structure of a U.S. presidential campaign typically look like?

Are there certain positions or officers that typically exist? Are there common "departments"? How do these departments typically report to executive campaign leadership?

I am sure there is some variance between different campaigns. However, like any other kind of "industry" there are likely similar structures and positions that commonly exist.

  • Are you asking how the candidates structure their respective campaign organizations, or how the campaign is organized and administered by the government? – Jeff Lambert Jan 25 '18 at 14:50

    @indigochild - it was more of a lazy way of asking "please clarify what should be in the answer that the Wikipedia does not cover" :) – user4012 Jan 25 '18 at 15:04
  • @user4012 Gotcha! The information in the wikipedia article would answer my question, if it were true. Unfortunately the article is poorly sourced, and even the existing sources are of dubious quality themselves. – indigochild Jan 25 '18 at 16:35
