Michael DuHaime to the NRSC
The National Republican Senatorial Committee has hired Michael DuHaime, late of Gov. Chris Christie's (R-N.J.) successful New Jersey bid and Sen. John McCain's (R-Ariz.) less successful presidential bid, to direct independent expenditures in the midterms. The press release reminds us of why he matters:
Former RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman previously described DuHaime as “a huge talent -- politically smart, excellent manager, exceptional at grassroots and experienced at building and managing a hundred-million dollar budget."
DuHaime was the RNC's political director in 2006, under Mehlman. Any other reading of this, about which party committee is the most serious and plugged in to GOP victories this year, is purely in your imagination. (Meanwhile, Democrats would rather have you pay attention to this story.)
