Chris Leavitt Joins Team Walker to Lead Virginia Efforts

Madison, Wis. – Ahead of Gov. Walker's Saturday visit to Virginia, Team Walker today announced the hire of veteran political operative Chris Leavitt.

He will serve as a political consultant to the organization, leading the campaign's charge in Virginia and in other states critical to winning the Republican nomination for president.

"It is a privilege to join Gov. Scott Walker's campaign for president," said Leavitt. "I believe Gov. Walker is the leader our country needs in the White House. He is a fighter, a winner, and he's proven time and time again that he won't back down in the face of a challenge. I look forward to the opportunity to build upon his already strong base of support, spread his winning message, and work toward victory in 2016."

Chris Leavitt served as campaign manager for Ed Gillespie's 2014 U.S. Senate run, and he managed State Sen. Mark Obenshain's 2013 campaign for Virginia Attorney General. Additionally, Leavitt previously managed U.S. Rep. Bob Goodlatte's campaign for Congress, Bryce Reeves' campaign for Virginia State Senate, and he served as political director for Sheriff Mike Bouchard's campaign for governor in Michigan.
