Florida Democratic Party adds communications and research staffby John Kennedy | June 3rd, 2013
The Florida Democratic Party continued to remake its office under new Chair Allison Tant, unveiling a few more changes Monday with a former spokesman for U.S. Rep. Lois Frankel, D-West Palm Beach, named the party’s communications director.
Joshua Karp worked for Frankel’s campaign last fall and also served as communications director for the Virginia Senate Democratic Caucus. Karp takes over for Brannon Jordan, who served the past two years under former Democratic Party Chairman Rod Smith.
Also named to new posts Monday were Max Steele, the party’s new press secretary and a former staffer the past two years, and Casey Nesselhauf, research director, who has worked the past four years as a researcher at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
“Their combination of Florida experience, relationships, and political savvy will make our party even stronger, and ensure we are holding Rick Scott and the Florida GOP accountable,” Tant said.
