David Rouzer on Wednesday announced key members of his campaign for U.S. Congress.
Brock McCleary of Pennsylvania will be the campaign's general consultant. McCleary until last year held senior positions in the National Republican Congressional Committee. He has worked as communications director for U.S. Rep. Patrick McHenry and has worked on other state and federal campaigns.
Bob Rosser, president of Impact Strategies in Raleigh, will be a senior adviser. Rosser is a longtime politico in North Carolina, dating back to Sen. Jesse Helms' campaigns. He has also worked for the state House and Senate Republican caucuses.
Nicole McClesky of Public Opinion Strategies will be the pollster. She has conducted focus groups for Republican campaigns, including Mitt Romney in 2012, and the Republican Governor's Association.
Brad Todd and Guy Harrison of the Virginia-based On Message Inc., will develop digital content for the campaign. Todd has consulted on the campaigns of Gov. Bobby Jindal and Gov. Jack Dalrymple, and members of congress. Harrison has been executive director of the National Republican Congressional Committee.
Sarah Hill Waters will be finance director and Jessica Wood communications director. Both worked on Rouzer's unsuccessful and highly expensive campaign in the 7th Congressional District last year.
