Moore named Transition Director

Columbia, SC – Today, SCGOP Chairman Chad Connelly named Matt Moore as Transition Director, tasking him with finding even more ways to grow the South Carolina Republican Party and build upon the party’s historic 2010 victories.

“I know Matt will steadily guide our party in transitioning to a new Chairman,” said Connelly. “Redistricting, our ‘First in the South’ 2012 presidential preference primary, and the 2012 election cycle all loom large on the calendar, and Matt’s diverse talents will serve our SCGOP well. He has a proven record of campaign victories and a great understanding of conservative reform policies.”

“Our South Carolina Republican Party is blessed with incredibly strong leaders and hard-working activists. I am honored to serve Chairman Connelly and look forward to continuing to show all South Carolinians that we are the party of transformational conservative leadership,” said Moore. “We are certainly not the party of big labor bureaucrats, Obamacare, and ‘leading from behind.'”

Connelly said additional staffing announcements would be forthcoming by the end of the month.

Moore, 29, is a former Deputy Political Director at the national Republican Governors Association (RGA) and Deputy Director at the Georgia Republican Party. He has served as an aide to two Republican governors and has advised three winning gubernatorial campaigns on technology and grassroots mobilizing. Moore’s private
sector experience includes systems engineering projects at The Home Depot, Nortel Networks, and ALCOA.

Most recently, Moore served as Executive Director of South Carolina Club for Growth, a group of citizens dedicated to the Ronald Reagan doctrine of lower taxes, smaller government and strong free enterprise.

Moore earned a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering (with Honors) and a Minor in Law from Georgia Tech and will soon complete his Master of Arts in Economics at the University of South Carolina.
