Patrick Millsaps, former Chairman of the State Ethics Commission and a partner at Hall Booth Smith & Slover, has been named
Captain Chief of Staff of the S.S. Titanic Gingrich presidential campaign.
His new title isn’t a shake-up. It’s part of the campaign’s efforts to beef back up staffing and campaign structure post-Iowa. Newt 2012 is still very much run by the candidate, but Gingrich has broadened his cadre of advisers. In addition to making sure the trains run on time, Millsaps will help with messaging as the race expands to multiple states. His promotion comes as the campaign prepares to challenge Florida’s “winner-take-all” delegate allocation – so far, the state’s 50 delegates were awarded to Mitt Romney.
