Gov hopeful Tom Wolf just added more muscle to his campaign team.

Mark Nicastre, who was in charge of communications strategy for the Pennsylvania Democrats in 2010 and 2012, is joining his campaign. He will be Wolf’s chief spokesman.

In a press release first reported by the Philadelphia Inquirer, Mark Nicastre spoke highly of Wolf’s credentials.

“In Tom’s experience in both the private and public sectors he has shown he is a different type of leader,” Nicastre said. “His vision to change Pennsylvania and fresh policy ideas will make him a strong governor, and I look forward to working with him.”

Nicastre was promoted from Communications Director to Deputy Executive Director of the party after the 2012 cycle.

The state party has not named a replacement. Current spokesman Marc Eisenstein and Deputy Press Secretary Beth Melena are expected to assume expanded roles.

  2. Observer,

    What a pathetically misinformed remark. The state party went 5 for 5 last year in statewide races. Obviously you are remembering the 2010 mess which was inherited by the current chair. The candidate for governor was… how can I say this nice… less than stellar.

  3. Observer isn’t very observant. The state party has been extremely successful in the past four years having helped rack up MAJOR victories including President, U.S. Senate, Auditor General, Attorney General. How could he/she say that? And by the way, Wolf is without the extra “e” on the end.

  4. Did you even pay attention to the ’12 election? We had a statewide sweep in PA. But yes PA Dems must be doing something wrong.

  5. Well, considering how inept and unsuccessful the state Dem organization has been the past 4 years, this hire is a nail in wolfe’s coffin. Really, is there is more ineffective state party organization in the Northeast or Mid-atlantic than here in PA? Wolfe should have gone out and hired someone who had won something somewhere along the way.
