RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - Tyler Foote, a seasoned political operative with experience in state and federal campaigns, has been hired to lead the campaign team of Republican congressional candidate David Rouzer.
"Tyler has a wealth of campaign experience and I am very excited to have him join our team," said Rouzer in announcing his choice. "Tyler has served as campaign manager on other competitive races around the country and I know his experience in those competitive districts will be of great benefit during this campaign."
Rouzer is a Republican seeking a rematch in the 7th District congressional race where Democrat Mike McIntyre holds the seat. In 2012, Rouzer lost the seat to McIntyre by only 600-plus votes. The race was one of the closest in the nation.
Foote most recently worked as campaign manager for Delegate Mike Watson's re-election campaign, which was one of Virginia's most competitive races. Previously, Foote served as campaign manager for Congressman Tim Murphy's 2012 re-election campaign and worked on the 2010 Kentucky Senate race for Sec. of State Trey Grayson.

-- Nicole McCleskey of Public Opinion Strategies
-- Brad Todd and Guy Harrison of On Message, Inc.
