AUSTIN, Texas –– Former Texas Governor Rick Perry’s political action committee, RickPAC, has hired a key Iowa political operative with deep ties to the national conservative movement and to America’s evangelical and Catholic communities.
Jamie Johnson, an ordained Anglican minister, former radio broadcaster, and grassroots GOP strategist, will be stepping down from his various responsibilities, including the Republican Party of Iowa State Central Committee and his day to day role at World Wide Missions & Affiliates to serve as a Senior Director to the campaign.
Johnson, 49, has spent three decades working in local, state, and federal politics across the United States. He is the vice president of the Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition, the director of outreach for Iowa Right to Life, and has served on the board of governors of the Council for National Policy, the nation’s preeminent network of conservative leaders, policy experts, and media professionals.
“I am excited to have Jamie Johnson as a senior member of our national team,” said Governor Perry. “He brings 30 years of political expertise as well as friendships with thousands of leaders in the conservative and faith-based community. He has a strong track record of building dynamic coalitions that advance virtue, liberty, and prosperity in American life.”
Johnson holds degrees in theology and public policy with a specialization in political communication, and he is a trusted source on conservative political trends for many national news agencies.
“I am honored to join Governor Perry in his work to restore America’s political, economic, and moral leadership in the world,” Johnson said.
“For the last 14 years, Rick Perry has been the most successful chief executive in America,” he added. “As a veteran, a public servant, and a man of strong moral conviction, he is uniquely qualified to lead a 21st century American renewal.”
