Politico announced Thursday that veteran Republican strategist Brad Dayspring will join the publication as its first vice president of communications.

In a memo to the staff, Politico’s Chief Operating Officer Kim Kingsley acknowledged that Dayspring was “not a conventional hire” for the national politics website.

“Politico is known for making waves, and so is Brad,” Kingsley wrote in the memo, which was published on the news site. “He is an unapologetic agitator and we see that as a tremendous asset.”

Dayspring first made waves on the DC political scene as a top aide for former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA). After abruptly resigning from that post, Dayspring went on to become the communications director for the National Republican Senatorial Committee. Most recently, he served as a senior adviser to the PAC supporting Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s (R) presidential run.
