Black names former Florida/Louisiana operative as campaign manager

U.S. Rep. Diane Black has assembled a group of “top Republican political operatives” to run her campaign for governor, according to a Politico ‘Morning Score’ notebook item:

Matt Parker is the campaign manager. In 2016 he ran President Donald Trump’s effort in Florida. He previously worked with Florida Gov. Rick Scott, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and the Louisiana Republican Party.

 Lance Frizell is serving as senior adviser. He has worked for the Tennessee Republican Party, the Tennessee House Caucus, and served as chief of staff for Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey. 

 Jordan Young is also a senior adviser for the campaign. Young served as deputy chief of staff to Ramsey and executive director of the Tennessee Senate Republican Caucus.

Chris Hartline is the campaign’s communications director. Prior to that he was press secretary and communications director for the House Budget Committee under Chairman Black and has also served as war room director for Scott’s reelection campaign.

Note: An  astute reader observes, via email, that Politico misspelled Frizzell’s name — leaving off one ‘z’ of the two in Frizzell.
