RNC director of digital media jumps ship just 100 days before the election
If you’re a political party that’s losing key officials with just 100 days to go before a presidential election, what does that say about your prospects?
Per Politico, the Republican National Committee has lost its director of film and digital media to a political ad agency, despite the fact that there will be a presidential election in a little more than three months.
Matthew Mazzone, who worked at the RNC for the past four years, has officially joined Poolhouse, a company that describes itself as “a leading political advertising agency and media consulting firm building ad campaigns for political campaigns, Fortune 500 companies and issue advocacy associations.”
So what about Mazzone caught Poolhouse’s attention?
“We strive to house the most creative and talented people in the political ad world, Matthew epitomizes both,” company co-founder Tim O’Toole said in a prepared statement. “From concept to creation, Matthew’s experience at the RNC allowed him to touch every aspect of production. His political acumen combined with knowledge of what it takes to craft an ad that is emotional and compelling is what Poolhouse does.”
With a tough election coming up, the RNC could really use someone with the ability to craft “emotional and compelling ads” — and now they’ve lost him.
