(CNN) - A veteran of Sen. John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign is headed to team Romney.
CNN has confirmed that Andrea Saul, who served as director of media affairs for the McCain-Palin ticket, is joining Mitt Romney's Free and Strong America PAC as a communications adviser.
"Andrea is a great addition to the team and she'll be a key part of our effort to spread Mitt Romney's message that the way to strengthen America and create jobs is with conservative fiscal and economic policies," Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom tells CNN.
Saul most recently served as press secretary last year for Republican nominee Carly Fiorina's bid for the U.S. Senate in California. Earlier in the cycle she was communications director for Florida Gov. Charlie Crist's campaign for the Senate, but she resigned when Crist dropped his bid for the GOP nomination and ran as an independent candidate.
The new position with the political action committee could put Saul in line for a leading communications position with Romney if the former Massachusetts governor and 2008 GOP presidential candidate makes another bid for the White House, as is expected.
