Former Patrick Morrisey campaign manager/body man Scott Will is now going to be the deputy political director for the Republican State Leadership Committee, according to a press release I received five minutes ago.
“Will’s experience running races in our states make him a perfect fit as we continue to build upon our successes in electing Republicans to the office of attorney general, lieutenant governor, secretary of state and legislator,” RSLC president Chris Jankowski said in the statement.
Will, an Iowa native, helped Morrisey defeat longtime incumbent Attorney General Darrell McGraw to become West Virginia’s first Republican attorney general since the Great Depression.
According to the press release, Will also managed Justin Bernier’s 2012 campaign for U.S. Congress in Connecticut, Anne Northup’s 2008 campaign for Congress in Kentucky and was a field director for Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign. None of those campaigns were successful.
The RSLC is the “largest caucus of Republican state leaders in the country and the only national organization whose mission is to elect down-ballot, state-level Republican officeholders,” according to the press release. The group has more than 100,000 donors from every state in the union, and spent $27 million in 42 states during the 2012 campaign season.
