Opportunity And Freedom PAC Announces Iowa Leadership Team

Opportunity and Freedom PAC today announced the hiring of Marshall Critchfield as Iowa State Director and Beth Hamilton as Iowa Deputy State Director.

Marshall Critchfield is stepping down from his role as Jasper County Republican Party Chairman to go to work forOpportunity and Freedom PAC. Marshall lives in Newton, IA with his wife, Stephanie, and their daughters Whitney and Jane Hadley.

Beth Hamilton is an experienced political operative who comes to Opportunity and Freedom PAC's Iowa operation from Jackson, MS, where she managed Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney's successful primary election.

"We are in this race for the long haul, and thanks to the support of our donors we have the resources to run a state of the art grassroots effort in Iowa, and that is what Marshall and Beth have been hired to do," said Jordan Russell, spokesman for Opportunity and Freedom PAC. "A Republican leader of Marshall's stature agreeing to come on board is a huge boost, and Beth is a first rate grassroots organizer who knows how to win. We could not be happier that both of them are on the team."

"I met Governor Perry in September of 2011 and I was very impressed with him - I pulled my kindergartener out of school early so she could watch his stump speech at our favorite coffee shop," said Critchfield. "The place was packed but the Governor still made his way to us against the wall and he shook hands with her. It's those retail political skills combined with his unbeatable record that give him a great shot at winning the Iowa Caucus. I'm looking forward to working with Beth and the rest our team at Opportunity and Freedom PAC to help make that happen."

"I'm thrilled to be a part of this effort because I believe Governor Perry's status as a military veteran and his record creating the strongest economy in America as governor of Texas make him the right choice for president," said Hamilton.
