PA Dems Expand Communications Team
The Pennsylvania Democratic Party has expanded their communications team.
On Tuesday, the PA Democratic Party announced the hiring of Jack Doyle and Rosie Lapowsky to their communications team. Doyle will serve as Senior Communications Advisor, while Lapowsky will be the Deputy Communications Director for the state party.
Both will have unique roles in each position.
According to the press release, Doyle will be focused on the 2022 U.S. Senate race, “specifically holding the Republican Senate candidates accountable throughout what is shaping up to be a long and messy primary, while Lapowsky “will be driving the message of what Democrats are doing for the people of Pennsylvania.”
“We are excited to announce the hires of Jack Doyle and Rosie Lapowsky as Senior Communications Advisor and Deputy Communications Director,” said Jason Henry, Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Democratic Party. “Pennsylvania will once again be crucial in the 2022 cycle, and we are committed to building the strongest possible team to ensure we keep delivering for Pennsylvania families.”
“Jack and Rosie both have experience communicating to audiences across Pennsylvania and the expertise in messaging and political strategy that we need to continue winning up and down the ballot,” Henry continued.
Brendan Welch will still serve as the PA Democratic Party Communications Director, a role he has been in since October 2019, while Lapowsky will be taking over for the role previously held by Andres Anzola.
Both Doyle and Lapowsky have held roles in Pennsylvania politics.
Doyle was the Pennsylvania Communications Director for Priorities USA’s Battleground State program. Most recently, Doyle served as the Communications Director and Senior Advisor for Sri Kulkarni’s campaign in Texas’ 22nd Congressional District.
“I am so excited and grateful to be working in Pennsylvania again,” said Doyle. “In just a few months, the Democratic majority in the Senate has delivered stimulus checks for families in need, increased vaccine distribution to protect us from COVID-19, and provided additional school funding so that our children can get back to school safely. In order to continue to build on the progress we are delivering to families both across the country and Pennsylvania, we need to protect that majority and I am thrilled to play a role in doing so.”
Lapowsky, a Scranton native, joins the state party after serving as Eastern Pennsylvania Regional Press Secretary for the Biden campaign. Prior to that role, Lapowsky served as the PA Deputy Communications Director for Mike Bloomberg 2020. She began her career with Rep. Matt Cartwright (D-Lackawanna).
“I am grateful for the opportunity to work with the PA Dems at such a pivotal time,” said Lapowsky. “Because of the success of the American Rescue Plan, Pennsylvanians are beginning to go back to work, small businesses are able to keep their doors open, and lives are beginning to return to normal.”
“Pennsylvanians know that our country is back on track thanks to President Biden and Democrats, and no thanks to a single Republican,” Lapowsky continued. “I am excited to build on our success and help elect Democrats up and down the ballot.”
