Romney campaign taking shape in Fla

donlin.We've neglected to update loyal Buzz readers about the Mitt Romney general election campaign in Florida. The campaign is close to leasing space in Tampa for its Florida headquarters - not far from the Obama campaign's state headquarters - the Fla primary band is getting back together.


Molly Donlin is state director, having led the Florida primary primary campaign and also the successful primary campaigns in Ohio, Illinois, and Wisconsin. The pride of Xavier University was RNC Victory Director in Michigan in 2010, was field director for the Rudy Giuliani campaign in Florida in 2008 and worked on the Bush's Ohio campaign in 2004.

"Molly Donlin did an outstanding job managing Governor Romney's winning Florida primary campaign, and we are excited to have her back in the Sunshine State for the general election," said national political director Rich Beeson. "She is an experienced political operative with a history of success who has the skills and abilities to help Gov. Romney turn Florida red in November."

Tallahassee strategists Brett Doster and Albert Martinez also are back on board as senior advisers.
