Simpson Announces Campaign Team

Boise, ID – Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson today announced several additions to his campaign team for the upcoming election. Simpson is running for re-election in Idaho’s Second Congressional District and enjoys strong support across Idaho from farmers, ranchers, business leaders, recreationists and many others.  Simpson enjoys an A Plus rating from the National Rifle Association, a 100 percent rating from National Right to Life, and is a frequent recipient of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Spirit of Free Enterprise award.

Simpson’s re-election campaign leadership will include Senior Advisors Todd Cranney and Travis Hawkes. Cranney has served in leadership roles with multiple national campaigns, most recently as the National Deputy Political Director for the Romney Ryan 2012 campaign. Hawkes served as the Idaho Finance Chair and on the National Finance Committee for the Romney Ryan campaign. Both are Idaho natives.

Brody Aston is Simpson’s Campaign Manager. Aston, with Elect Idaho LLC, operated by Skip Smyser and Jason Kreizenbeck, previously worked on Congressman Raul Labrador’s campaign.

Kendra Waitley is Simpson’s state fundraiser. Waitley owns her own fundraising company and most recently worked on Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter’s re-elect campaign. Waitley also works with Leadership Idaho Agriculture, City Club of Boise and Julia Davis Park.

Simpson has also put in place an experienced, nationally known team to handle outreach and media which includes Brandon Waters with Arena Communications and Sonny Scott with Rising Tide Media.

Long-time republican pollster Bob Moore will continue his work as a Simpson consultant as well.

“I’m extremely proud of the team we’ve put in place for the 2014 election cycle,” said Simpson. “Each member is an expert in their respective areas and will be critical to ensuring we’re effectively communicating my conservative record and pro-growth agenda to Idaho voters.”
