Meet the Fla Democrats' new communications director



brannon.She is Brannon Jordan, Tampa native, fourth generation Floridian, and former deputy communications director for the Democratic Governors Association. Jordan, who also worked in the press offices of former CFO Alex Sink and the Jim Davis for Governor campaign and for Planned Parenthood Federation of America in Washington, replaces outgoing communications director Eric Jotkoff, who has big shoes to fill.

“Brannon will be a tremendous asset to our already strong team,” state Democratic party chairman Rod Smith said. “A Florida native, she is a seasoned and talented communicator who stands ready to hold Republicans accountable while promoting our party’s focus on restoring the economy and creating jobs.”

“It’s a privilege to serve Chairman Smith and Florida Democrats,” Jordan said. “Under the party’s leadership, Democrats in Florida are turning the tide on Republicans, recently winning mayoral races in both Tampa and Jacksonville. Floridians can see that Democrats are working hard to restore our state’s economy and create jobs while the Republicans are more concerned about how they’re going to win races under the backdrop of Rick Scott’s job-killing policies and rock-bottom approval rating.”
