Matt Moore is the new executive director of the South Carolina Republican Party. He was recently name transition director of the party under new Chairman Chad Connelly. He now replaces Joel Sawyer, who has gone to work for the Jon Huntsman campaign for president.
Connelly says, “He is well-respected by Republicans across our state and has worked closely with many of our activists and elected officials. I am extremely confident in Matt’s ability to guide the SCGOP team as we work to take back the White House in 2012.”
The 29-year-old was until now executive director of the South Carolina Club for Growth, a conservative group that funds conservative candidates and promotes lower taxes, smaller government and free enterprise.
Connelly says additional staffing decisions would be announced later this week.
