COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Portman for Senate campaign today announced the hire of Michawn Rich as the campaign's Communications Director.
"We are very excited to have Michawn Rich join us as we kick off the general election," campaign manager Corry Bliss said. "Michawn's discipline and experience in competitive races – including 2014’s most competitive congressional race in the country – will be a great addition to our team. She is a seasoned communicator who will help us contrast Rob's vision for a brighter future with why Ohio can't go back to Ted Strickland's Ohio when the state lost over 350,000 jobs and ranked 48th in job creation."
Michawn most recently served as Deputy Communications Director for Senator Dean Heller (R-Nevada) and previously as Communications Director for Doug Ose's congressional campaign during the 2014 election cycle. She graduated from Geneva College with a degree in writing and received her master’s degree in journalism from the University of Colorado Boulder.
