NRCC To Keep Winning Team In 2011

Fresh from the elections that gave Republicans their largest ranks in the House since 1946, the National Republican Congressional Committee will keep three of their top campaign operatives in the same positions for the next election cycle.

In an announcement exclusive to HUMAN EVENTS, NRCC Chairman Pete Sessions (R-TX) told us that eCampaign Director John Randall, Coalitions Director Mike Bober, and Research Department head Jon Black would all remain in their current roles for the House elections in 2011-12.  As Sessions put it, “John, Mike, and Jon played critical roles in laying the groundwork for victory in 2010.  With their leadership in new eCampaign and Coalitions departments and a strong research department, we opened new communications channels with allies and positioned candidates for success.  I’m proud to have these talented and devoted leaders stay on for more victories in 2012.”

All three of the Sessions team are well-known and trusted figures among the conservative community in Washington—an important point, giving the criticism of previoius NRCC chairmen that they kept conservative activists at arm’s length.  Black, for example, worked for the research team at the National Republican Senatorial Committee and was a staffer for former Rep. Chris Cannon (R.-UT).  Bober was once the operating head of the House Conservatives Fund, the political arm for the House Republican Study Committee,  Randall headed the Radio and TV section for the NRCC in 2006 and was online communications mananger for the NRSC in 2008.
