Former Romney Comm. Director Joins Republican Governors Association

Former Communications Director for Mitt Romney’s 2012 campaign Gail Gitcho will join the Republican Governors Association (RGA) under the same title. 

“With 38 governor’s races over the next two years, Gail’s record as an aggressive strategist and talented spokesman will serve the RGA well in promoting the successful results-oriented records of our governors,” RGA Chairman and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said in a statement on Monday.

Prior to her post in the 2012 race, Gitcho served as a regional press secretary for Romney’s 2008 presidential bid. She later jumped to Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) presidential campaign after Romney dropped out.
