Iowa Republicans hire new communications team

The Republican Party of Iowa has hired a new team of communications staffers to get out the word on GOP candidates for the November election and promote the party.

Jeff Patch is the new communications director.  He was press secretary for Rep. Tom Latham and has worked as a consultant.

Tim Albrecht will serve as digital director helping the party run its website and social media strategy.  He runs his own public relations firm and has worked for former presidential nominee Mitt Romney and candidate Steve Forbes.  He also worked as communications director for Gov. Terry Branstad after helping run his campaign's communications.

Jahan Wilcox, who has worked for the Republican National Committee and other conservative groups, will write rapid response news releases to counter Democratic claims during the campaign.
