Mitt Romney gets serious about Florida

Yes, Crowley Political Report knows that Mitt Romney did not take Presidency 5 seriously, but it is time for Florida Republicans to get over it.

Of course, it is still a tad embarrassing that Romney finished well behind Herman Cain in the straw ballot.

Anyway, we reported earlier that Romney had hired Brett Doster to help lead his Florida effort. Today, Romney added some new folks to his Florida staff.

Aaaaaannnnnndddddd - here they are:

Molly Donlin Will Be The Romney For President Florida State Director. Donlin has extensive experience working at the state level having worked for state parties in Wisconsin, Michigan, Virginia and Ohio. Donlin has also worked for the Republican National Committee, the Justice Department, and Rudy Giuliani’s 2008 Florida campaign.

JC Hernandez Will Serve As The Florida Field Director. Previously, Hernandez served as the Executive Director of the Republican Party of Miami Dade County where he managed electoral activity at the county, state and federal level. This effort included Senator Marco Rubio’s 2010 Senate campaign. Hernandez has also served in roles for both Barry University in Miami and Roosevelt University in Chicago.

Alex Melendez Will Serve As The Tampa Bay Regional Field Director. Melendez is a veteran of Governor Rick Scott’s 2010 campaign and worked for the Florida Department of Corrections following the election. In 2008, Melendez worked on John McCain’s Florida campaign.

Andrew Messer Will Serve As The North FL Regional Field Director. Messer is a Partner at The Vineyard Company, a political and public relations consulting firm. He is a graduate of Liberty University School of Law.

Brett Doster Will Serve As A Strategic Adviser. Doster has worked for the past two decades in Florida politics. He served as Special Assistant to Jeb Bush during his 1993 campaign and served as Executive Director for Bush-Cheney 2004’s Florida campaign.
