The Democratic National Committee today criticized McCain today for his reported choice of spokesperson in New Hampshire.
On Wednesday night, PoliticsNJ.com, a New Jersey political news website, reported that Jill Hazelbaker was hired by McCain to be his New Hampshire Communications director. Previously she held the same position in New Jersey for Tom Kean Jr.’s unsuccessful campaign for the US Senate.
During that campaign she came under fire for apparently misleading reporters about whether the Kean campaign was involved in making anonymous posting on liberal blogs.
“Senator McCain is taking the Double Talk Express to a new low,” said Democratic National Committee spokesman Damien LaVera. “This is one more piece of evidence that John McCain will do or say anything to try to secure the Republican nomination.”
