Hazelbaker advances in McCain camp

The shakeup of John McCain’s presidential campaign team means a promotion for Jill Hazelbaker, who worked in New Jersey during the last cycle as Communications Director for Tom Kean, Jr.’s U.S. Senate campaign.

Hazelbaker, the McCain Communications Director in New Hampshire, is expected to succeed Brian Jones as National Communications Director, according to Atlantic Online’s Marc Ambinder. Ambinder says Hazelbaker has “worked closely with McCain’s new team, worked well with his old team, and has no dog in the fight but McCain.”
