“Working with Jeff is something that I feel very passionate about, given his strong conservative roots and determination to bring change to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,” Christian said in a release announcing the hire.
“Ted has a long history of outstanding work for conservative movements, and has made waves in the political realm with his determined efforts. I am looking forward to working with Ted to continue building our grassroots movement,” Bartos said in the release.
Christian led the state efforts for the Trump campaign that ended with Pennsylvania going for a Republican Presidential candidate for the first time since 1988. Christian has also worked as Pennsylvania State Director for McCain-Palin 2008 and Executive Director of the New Jersey Republican State Committee.
Bartos is running against State Representatives Rick Saccone (R-Allegheny) and Jim Christiana (R-Beaver), and RNC Delegate Andrew Schektor to challenge Senator Bob Casey next year. Congressmen Lou Barletta (R-Luzerne) and Mike Kelly (R-Butler), and Southeast businessman Paul Addis are considering runs as well.
