Montana Dems name new communications director with eye on 2018

By Missoula Current

Looking to Montana’s race for the U.S. Senate next year, the Montana Democratic Party has appointed Chris Meagher as its new senior communications advisor.

Meagher most recently worked as senior communications advisor at the Colorado Democratic Party, where he helped re-elect Sen. Michael Bennet.

Prior to that, Meagher was a communications manager for General Motors and the communications director for Rep. Lois Capps. He also spent seven years as a newspaper reporter and is related to Thomas Francis Meagher, who was governor of the Territory of Montana.

“Chris will be an important addition to our team as we look forward to a successful 2018 election cycle,” said Nancy Keenan, Executive Director of the Montana Democratic Party. “2018 will be a critical year for our state and for our country, and we are excited to have Chris on our team as we look to re-elect Sen. Jon Tester so that he can continue to work on behalf of Montanans in Washington.”
