Celeste Lewis will run Benson's A.G. campaign
Former state Rep. Holly Benson of Pensacola has hired a full-time campaign manager for her race for attorney general: Celeste Lewis, a former high-level aide to Gov. Jeb Bush. Lewis, 44, is currently the staffer in the House speaker's office responsible for appointments, correspondence and public records requests. Her last day in the House will be Friday, Nov. 20.
Lewis is a former Republican Party staffer and was part of the campaign team for all three of Bush's campaigns for governor in 1994, 1998 and 2002. The Benson campaign is shopping for campaign office space in Tallahassee, campaign spokeswoman Sarah Bascom said.
