The Republican State Leadership Committee announced Monday that Jill Bader is taking over as communications director.

Bader most recently worked with the Romney campaign in Tampa as Florida communications director for the Republican National Committee. Prior to that, she was senior public policy and communications advisor to Girl Scouts of the USA, and she’s worked on both the Hill and numerous statewide campaigns—including Gov. Scott Walker’s (R-Wis.) and Sen. Lamar Alexander’s (R-Tenn.).

She’s replacing Adam Temple, who will remain a communications advisor to the RSLC while continuing in his capacity as VP of public affairs at JDA Frontline.

Chris Jankowski, RSLC president, issued this statement on the change: “We are pleased to welcome Jill Bader to the RSLC team of talented and dedicated individuals working to elect Republicans to state level office across the nation. On the heels of two record breaking election cycles, Jill’s outstanding record on Capitol Hill and in successful campaigns across the country make her a perfect fit as we continue to build upon our successes in electing Republicans to the office of attorney general, lieutenant governor, secretary of state and legislator. In addition, her strong personal and professional passion for supporting women's leadership development will be an invaluable asset as we work to grow our Right Women, Right Now initiative.”
