Scott Brown taps Gail Gitcho as spokeswoman

BOSTON — Sen.-elect Scott Brown has tapped a Romney campaign veteran to be his new communications director.

Gail Gitcho has been working most recently as national press secretary for the Republican National Committee.

Brown says Gitcho is “well known to the national and Washington press corps and has a reputation for being fair and responsive to reporters.”

Before joining the RNC last May, Gitcho was a regional press secretary for Mitt Romney’s 2008 presidential campaign. She also worked for John McCain’s 2008 Republican presidential campaign as mid-Atlantic communications director.

The new job reunites her with Beth Myers, Eric Fehrnstrom and Peter Flaherty, the three Romney campaign veterans who led Brown’s upset Senate campaign over Democrat Martha Coakley.

Brown expects to be sworn in to succeed the late Sen. Edward Kennedy next week.
