Mike Mikus will serve as the campaign’s consultant on message and strategy.
Mikus currently serves as Chief Strategist for the Katie McGinty Senate campaign. In 2008, he was Rep. Jason Altmire’s campaign manager. He also managed Congressman Mark Critz’s campaigns in 2010 and 2012.
“I am excited to have Mike on my campaign team. He knows how to win tough elections and nobody knows that 12th District better than Mike,” McClelland said. “Mike’s expertise in these types of races will go a long way toward propelling us to victory on Election Day.”
“I am honored to be working for Erin McClelland,” Mikus responded. “She’s a fighter who will wake up every day looking for ways to strengthen and grow the middle class, while Keith Rothfus ignores the needs of western Pennsylvania families and does nothing but cater to the wealthy Washington special interests.”
The 12th Congressional District consists of all of Beaver County, and parts of Allegheny, Cambria, Lawrence, Somerset, and Westmoreland Counties.
