Jordan Signs on With Saul Shorr
In the first of what undoubtedly will be a slew of realignments in the consulting world, Jim Jordan, a prominent Democratic strategist, has decided to join the media firm of Shorr Johnson Magnus as a senior adviser.
"Andrea Johnson, Adam Magnus and I are thrilled that Jim has accepted the offer to join our firm," said Saul Shorr, one of the firm's principals. "We know it will make us stronger both in serving our political clients, and expanding our non-campaign business."
Jordan is a well-known name in Democratic circles, having worked for a number of national politicians over the past decade. He served as political director, communications director and executive director at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee earlier this decade and in 2008 oversaw the organization's independent expenditure operation -- a major reason the party was able to pick up seven seats.
Jordan also has dabbled in national politics, running Sen. John Kerry's political operation for several years and eventually serving as campaign manager for the Massachusetts Democrat's presidential bid for much of 2003.
Jordan joins a firm coming off a very successful 2008 cycle that included work as part of President-elect Barack Obama's media team as well as gubernatorial victories in North Carolina and Washington state.
Shorr Johnson Magnus is likely to have another busy cycle in 2010. Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is mentioned as either a Senate or gubernatorial candidate while Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan is reportedly considering a run against Sen. Kit Bond (R) -- both are clients of the firm.
