Shop Talk: NRSC Hires Press Secretary and Western Regional Political Director

The National Republican Senatorial Committee continues to add staff for 2014, bringing on Brook Hougesen as press secretary and Sarah Morgan as western regional political director.

Hougesen heads to the NRSC from Rep. Adam Kinzinger’s office, where she served as the Illinois Republican’s communications director. Last cycle, she worked for the Congressional Leadership Fund super PAC and its sister organization, American Action Network.

Morgan served as campaign manager for Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., last fall. She’s also worked as a state office administrator for former Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz.

These NRSC hires are in addition to the committee’s January staff announcement. On Monday, GOP operative Matt Lira announced that he would be the committee’s new deputy executive director.
