George Allen Announces Campaign Manager
Mount Vernon, VA – The George Allen for U.S. Senate campaign announced today that Mike Thomas will serve as Campaign Manager. Thomas has a long history with Allen, having run his insurgent campaign for Governor as well as serving as Chief of Staff and State Director during Allen’s service in the U.S. Senate.
“Susan and I are thrilled to have Mike Thomas on board to lead our campaign. Mike understands campaigns are won with principles and ideas advocated at the local level, home by home,” George Allen stated. “Mike is a trusted friend who Susan and I feel blessed to have once again as a proven leader of our team. Mike has the necessary experience and personal knowledge of Virginia, its people, and our values to lead our grassroots insurgency. His addition makes our team even stronger, and together we will build a campaign focused on bringing Virginia’s voices, views and values back to the U.S. Senate.”
To re-join the Allen team, Thomas will be leaving McGuireWoods Consulting, which he joined after serving as State Director and Chief of Staff for George Allen in the U.S. Senate. Prior to that Thomas served in two Governors’ administrations as both the Secretary of Administration to the Commonwealth and Director of the Virginia Department of Information Technology. For the past 15 years, Thomas has served as First Vice Chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia.
