State Speaker Thom Tillis has started to build his campaign team for his Senate bid in North Carolina, one of the top targeted races of the 2014 cycle.

Tillis announced his challenge to Sen. Kay Hagan, D-N.C., last week. He’s the first well-known Republican to enter the race.

His team includes:

  • Media: OnMessage Inc.
  • Pollster: Glen Bolger, Public Opinion Strategies
  • General consultant: Paul Shumaker, Capitol Communications Inc.

A Tillis source notes that Shumaker and Bolger have worked together in the past for Sen. Richard M. Burr, R-N.C.

Hagan began building her team earlier this year.
