Broesder to lead communication efforts for Montana Democrats

April 23, 2012

Brett Broesder, who helped run Attorney General Peter Kilmartin’s winning 2010 campaign, is headed to a new gig — communications director for the Montana Democratic Party.

Broesder, leaving a PR job in NYC, is expected to focus his attention on the fight for an open governor’s seat that Politico recently called one of the five most competitive in the nation:

[T]he Supreme Court’s health care ruling could adversely impact Democratic Attorney General Steve Bullock — but for the opposite reason. Bullock declined to join the multistate lawsuit against “Obamacare,” writing in April 2010 that he saw “no credible constitutional claim.” If the nation’s top justices disagree, it will be easy for Republicans to question the Democrat’s competence and judgment. The good news for the presumptive Democratic nominee is that he’s able to look toward the general election as the GOP navigates its colorful primary, which includes a deep-pocketed candidate who once offered advice on how to land a high-quality prostitute overseas.

“I’m looking forward to helping Montana Democrats have a successful election cycle – which in turn will assist with spurring job creation, enhancing the climate for small business growth, and strengthening the education system in Big Sky Country,” Broesder tells On Politics via email.

One of Broesder’s fellow staffers from the 2010 Kilmartin campaign, Chris Farrell, recently detailed plans to leave for law school.

Another former RI PR/political hand, Andrea Marcoccio, settled in Montana after going there to work for President Obama’s campaign in 2008. Broesder, on the other hand, has expressed a strong interest in getting back to Rhode Island.
