Sorenson comes to the position having served in a number of roles during his career in Republican politics; among these includes working as the deputy director of operations for the 2008 Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn.
Sorenson began his career working for U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert in Washington, D.C. as a legislative assistant. He is a veteran of numerous congressional campaigns and served as a Republican State Party executive director in 2009.
Sorenson says he is ready for his second convention.
“The convention is such a dynamic event and changes every four years, depending on the city and venue. I am looking forward to helping plan another successful convention and nominating our Republican presidential candidate. I am excited to help create a welcoming atmosphere to enable our participants to enjoy the convention.”
Convention CEO William Harris is thankful to have Sorenson heading up transportation.
“Sorenson understands what needs to get done and how a Republican convention functions efficiently – he will be invaluable when the thousands of delegates, media and guests descend upon the Tampa Bay area in August,” he said.
