It's official: Amy Graham leaving Gov's office to work for Mitt Romney

in Uncategorized by

Amy Graham, spokeswoman for Gov. Rick Scott said Monday she is leaving the governor’s office May 18 to work for the Mitt Romney campaign. Graham, a Port St. Lucie native, previously worked for the Department of Environmental Protection where she was a big part of the communications team during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill crisis. Graham will be working with Kristy Campbell, who formerly worked as a spokesman for Bill McCollum when he ran for governor in 2010; for Romney during his last presidential run; and for Gov. Jeb Bush.

We certainly wish the effervescent Graham luck, although we hope she finds time to read the New York Times.
