Spiker.  “We’re rethinking how we build our field operation and Chad is a perfect fit to build our new bottom up, precinct level focused field organization.”

“Heading into 2014 the RNC is on the ground organizing in neighborhoods across the country earlier than we’ve ever been before,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “We’re building an long term operation in Iowa that will not only help us win elections in 2014 but also in 2016 and beyond.”
