BOWLING GREEN, Ky. -- A state political action committee focused on helping Republicans take control of the state House of Representatives has hired a Bowling Green resident and former Mitt Romney staffer to be its executive director.
Kathryn Breiwa will lead AmeriGOP's fundraising efforts and run its day-to-day operations. Breiwa was the deputy director for external relations for the Romney for President campaign and is a former regional field director for the Republican Party of Kentucky.
She's no stranger to south central Kentucky. She says Bowling Green has so many kind and helpful people here who are trying to make Kentucky a better place.
AmeriGOP Chairman Richard Knock said he hopes to raise $500,000 for the November elections. He wants to use that money to target individual voters in the 2nd Congressional District.
Democrats have a 54-46 majority in the state House of Representatives. Republicans have not had a majority in the state House since 1920.
