It was announced last week that Mitt Romney's presidential campaign added Ed Gillespie as a senior advisor.
Gillespie has worked with many campaigns over the years. He served as Republican National Committee Chairman as well as taking over as Republican Party of Virginia chairman in 2006. He left that position in 2007 to join President George W. Bush's administration. In 2009, he was part of the team that helped Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell lead the Republican sweep one year after Barack Obama took over the White House.
Mitt Romney is the Republican front runner in the presidential campaign, seeking the nomination to go up against Barack Obama in the general election in November.
