NRCC Leadership Team Stays Intact

Guy Harrison will lead the National Republican Congressional Committee for another two years as executive director, according to an NRCC source familiar with the move.

Harrison staying on means that the leadership of the NRCC -- which guided Republicans to a 63-seat gain in 2010 -- will remain largely unchanged in the 2012 cycle. NRCC Chair Pete Sessions (R-Texas) is also staying on for another two years.

Other members of the NRCC's 2010 team are getting promotions. Mike Shields, who led the committee's independent expenditure arm in 2010, is moving to political director. And Paul Lindsay, who served as press secretary this year, will be communications director.

Ken Spain, the committee's 2010 communications director, is heading into the private sector. Brian Walsh, the committee's 2010 political director, is also leaving to pursue new opportunities.

On the financial side, former deputy Jenny Drucker will become finance director.

These moves were originally reported by The Fix.

While much of the staff is remaining the same, there is one notable change. Johnny DeStefano, who worked as the NRCC's deputy executive director in 2010, will be heading into the Speaker's office, according to a House aide.
