March 25, 2013

Trenton, NJ – The New Jersey Republican Party Chairman Samuel Raia has named Ben Sparks Communications Director of the NJGOP, effective Monday, March 4.

“We are excited to have Ben come on board at such a crucial time for New Jersey,” said Raia. “Ben’s years of political and communications experience will be an asset as we continue to elect Republicans at every level throughout the state.”

Ben most recently served as the Romney campaign’s communications director in Wisconsin, and as the Wisconsin GOP communications director during Governor Scott Walker’s victory in last year’s recall election. Previously, he worked two cycles with the National Republican Senatorial Committee, followed by his work at the Ohio Republican Party and Rob Portman’s United States Senate campaign in 2010, after which he managed a successful Virginia state delegate race in 2011.

“New Jersey continues to set the standard nationally for bold leadership and reform, and I look forward to coming on board and helping Republicans in the state continue to build on the successes of the last four years,” Sparks said.
