(CNN) – Senator-elect Scott Brown, R-Massachusetts, has turned to political veteran Gail Gitcho to oversee his communications operation.
Brown defeated Democrat Martha Coakley earlier this month for the right to serve the remaining three years of the late Sen. Edward Kennedy’s, D-Massachusetts, term.
Gitcho, currently press secretary at the Republican National Committee, has ties to the Massachusetts GOP. She worked on former Gov. Mitt Romney’s 2008 bid for the Republican presidential nomination. She also worked on Sen. John McCain’s, R-Arizona, 2008 presidential campaign and for Rep. Clay Shaw, R-Florida, on Capitol Hill.
