Romney's PAC Hires Communications Adviser

Former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney's (R) Free and Strong America PAC announced today the addition of Andrea Saul, a communications veteran of prominent campaigns -- including a brief stint as media director for former Fla. Gov. Charlie Crist's (I) Senate bid.

Fresh off her role as press secretary for 2010 California Senate nominee Carly Fiorina (R), Saul's resume also includes similar positions for McCain-Palin in 2008, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), and the Republican National Committee. She quit Crist's Senate campaign when the then-governor left the Republican Party to run as an independent.

As Romney primes for a second presidential run, Saul could be a top contender for his communications team. Still, Kevin Madden, who ran Romney's press room for his 2008 White House bid, says Saul's involvement doesn't preclude the possibility that he'll reprise his role in 2012.

"The hiring is related to the PAC since [there's been] no announcement on a campaign yet," Madden said in an e-mail. "I'm a supporter of the Governor and have advised the PAC on an informal basis, but no decisions have been made with regard to any role I'd have in a campaign that hasn't yet been announced."
