CONCORD, N.H. —The New Hampshire Republican Party has hired a campaign aide to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to serve as its next executive director.
Until Tuesday, Matt Mowers served as a regional political director on Christie’s re-election campaign. Christie, a Republican, won with 60 percent of the vote in a very Democratic leaning state. Mowers was in charge of an eight-county region that had 2.2 million voters, far more than all of New Hampshire. Mowers was called a “political wonder boy” by PolitickerNJ.com.
“New Hampshire Republicans have an enormous opportunity to make significant gains in 2014 if they focus on the traditional Granite State principles of limited government and fiscal responsibility,” said Mowers. “I am thrilled to join Chairman Horn’s team, and I am eager to help our fiscally responsible candidates take back New Hampshire next November.”
