Politico has named Brad Dayspring its first vp of communications. Dayspring has spent more than a decade as a Republican operative, but is most well-known for almost getting in a physical fight when he worked as an aide for Eric Cantor.
Dayspring’s hot-headed ways obviously do not bother Politico.
“Since our launch in 2007, we’ve always thought of Politico as a political candidate; one that needs a carefully managed and consistent message, a great offensive strategy and a clear path ahead,” wrote Politico COO Kim Kingsley, in a memo. “So in that respect, Brad was born for this job.”
