Blog: New Politics welcomes Michael Joffrion to the team!

New Politics is excited to welcome Michael Joffrion to the team as a new Senior Campaign Advisor! Joffrion will lead New Politics’ growth on the Republican side of the aisle, helping recruit and advise candidates and their campaigns across the country.

He joins the team having served on multiple Republican presidential and U.S. Senate campaigns, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and the Alabama Republican Party. Joffrion is widely viewed as one of the most experienced Republican strategists in the country.
