Uber consultant Jim Rimes, former executive director of the Republican party of Florida, is going “inside” to serve as Staff Director of the Senate Majority Office. Rimes’ officially came aboard on Monday.
For the better part of the last decade, Rimes has been a senior partner at Enwright Consulting Group, where he consulted on numerous legislative campaigns, including the newly-elected Jeff Brandes.
In addition to his vast experience as a political consultant and party operative, Rimes served as a Deputy Chief of Staff to Governor Charlie Crist.
Bottom line, Rimes is one of the most respected operatives in Florida. This is incredibly strong move by Senate leadership.
