RGA picks Paul Bennecke for executive director slot – POLITICO

The Republican Governors Association has tapped a veteran committee insider, Georgia political hand Paul Bennecke, to serve as the group’s executive director under its newly elected chairman, Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam.

The influential staff job is among the most coveted positions in Republican politics, placing the occupant in the captain’s chair at a committee that routinely raises and spends hundreds of millions of dollars from one election cycle to the next. Senior advisers to multiple GOP governors sought the post.

Bennecke has been a senior RGA strategist on and off for years, serving as the group’s political director from 2007 to 2010. Bennecke ran the committee’s outside spending in three states during the most recent election cycle: Massachusetts, Kansas and Georgia.
