The National Republican Congressional Committee continued to expand Wednesday with the addition of four new top staffers.

Sally McAllister will be the committee’s new political action committee director after most recently serving in the same role for Constellation Energy. Prior to that, McAllister was vice president of political affairs for Epiphany Productions Inc., where she served as a fundraising consultant for the committee and several Members, including Reps. Joe Barton (R-Texas), Ken Calvert (R-Calif.), Fred Upton (R-Mich.) and former Rep. Jim Walsh (R-N.Y.).

Shahla Seaborn will be the new director of the Major Donor Programs, following her recent work as a fundraising consultant for McCain’s campaign and the RNC in 2008. Seaborn also served as the Northeast finance director for former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s presidential campaign.

The new director of field finance is Trent Edwards, who served in the same capacity at the committee in the 2008 cycle. This is Edwards’ third cycle at the NRCC, following his job as a field finance representative in 2006.
