Spain Leaves NRCC , Heads To Private Consulting

December 8, 2010

Ken Spain, who led the National Republican Congressional Committee's communications shop for the 2010 cycle, is leaving the committee and heading into private consulting.

The Private Equity Growth Capital Council announced Wednesday morning that Spain will join the company as vice president of public affairs and communications. The Blackstone Group, Bain Capital and The Carlyle Group are three headlining members of the Council.

Spain earned plaudits at the NRCC for leading the communications team in a cycle where the GOP took back the House and captured 63 seats. He also worked as the committee's national press secretary during the 2008 cycle.

In a statement to Hotline On Call NRCC Chairman Pete Sessions applauded Spain's work in 2010.

"Ken's leadership and steady counsel played an integral role in the historic gains for Republicans in November," Sessions said. "While we will miss his battle-tested experience and tireless efforts here at the NRCC over the last two cycles, I know I speak for all House Republicans in wishing him continued success in his next endeavor."

Spain's departure leaves a coveted opening at the helm of the NRCC's communications shop for the 2012 cycle. Paul Lindsay, who served as press secretary this year, is a leading candidate for the job.
