N.H. GOP Hires New Executive Director, State Field Director


The New Hampshire Republican Party has made two new, high-profile appointments.

The party has hired Matt Mowers as its executive director and Bobby Collins as state field director.

Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn made the announcement Wednesday.

“Matt Mowers and Bobby Collins are extremely talented political operatives who will continue to build and expand our strong party infrastructure," Horn said in a press release. "They are seasoned and experienced professionals who have the skills that are needed to help New Hampshire Republicans win in 2014."

Mowers recently worked as regional political director for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's reelection campaign.

The announcement comes a day after Christie won reelection.

Mowers has worked for Christie since 2010.
