Senator McCain Hires Adviser Familiar With Ex-Governor Romney January 19, 2007

Posted by notapundit in Congress, Politics, US News.

BOSTON (AP)–Sen. John McCain has hired a Boston political operative with intimate knowledge of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and his changing political positions to work on his presidential exploratory committee.

Rob Gray, president of Gray Media, served as the top political adviser to Lt. Gov. Kerry Healey last fall in her unsuccessful campaign to succeed Romney as governor. That campaign suffered, in part, as Romney adopted increasingly conservative positions that differed from the moderate platform he and Healey campaigned on in 2002.

In his new position, Gray will advise McCain, R-Ariz., on New England strategy, Gray told The Associated Press Friday.

Romney announced Jan. 3 that, like McCain, he was creating a committee to explore a possible run for the 2008 GOP presidential nomination. Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani and Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., are among others who have taken that step.

“We’re going to advise John McCain’s campaign as I did on the Bush campaigns, and we look forward to it,” Gray said.
