WASHINGTON (CNN) - The Friends of Fred Thompson committee has moved swiftly to replace Linda Rozett, who resigned from the campaing earlier this week.
Thompson's new communications director is Todd Harris. In 2000, Harris was traveling press secretary and spokesman for Arizona Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign. In 2002, Harris was the communications director and spokesman for Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's reelection campaign. In 2003, Harris was a communications strategist for Arnold Schwarzenegger's successful California gubernatorial campaign.
Thompson, a former U.S. Senator from Tennessee, is expected to formally launch his 2008 presidential bid around Labor Day.
