Four Help Whip Floor Into Shape At RNC
Written by Kelly Cernetich, Deputy Editor/ PoliticsPA.com
Democrats have been saying that Pennsylvania isn’t in play for the Republicans. They’ve pointed to Gov. Corbett’s limited presence at Romney-Ryan campaign stops and the state being downgraded from swing state to “learns Dem.”
But despite these assertions, four Pennsylvanians found themselves playing a large role at the Republican National Convention by helping with whip operations and communication on the floor to keep order in all the chaos.
Chester County’s David James, a partner at FLS Connect, was the floor whip manager for the convention.
Dauphin County’s Dan Hayward, of Novak Strategic Advisers, was a floater on the floor – helping the whip team with any issues and questions they had.
Hayward said James was the orchestrator for a lot of operations on the floor, and said James was one of the reasons why communication on the floor ran as smoothly as it did.
