Pat McCrory's campaign is taking shape for the November general election with the addition of two new staffers.
He hired Ricky Diaz, a former spokesman for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, to serve as press secretary. Diaz, a Vanderbilt grad, helped get Christie elected in 2009 and was a former deputy communications director in U.S. Sen. Richard Burr's 2010 campaign.
And he brought Matthew McKillip on board to serve as a policy and research coordinator. McKillip, a Georgetown alum, formerly worked at the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank, where he specialized in domestic policy research.
