According to an article in ‘Roll Call’ Representative-elect Bradley Byrne has chosen Auburn graduate Alex Schriver to be his Chief of Staff.
Schriver is just 25 years old, but Rep.–elect Byrne told ‘Roll Call’, “To me the most important factor is not the age but a focus on the constituents in the 1st District and understanding Bradley and his family, and serving his constituents.”

Byrne told ‘Roll Call’ that the formal announcement will be on Thursday.

Alex Schriver said in ‘Roll Call’, “I don’t see my role as one to get out front on issues.  My role is to support the congressman.”

In 2010, Schriver became the deputy political director of Byrne’s Republican Primary run for governor of Alabama to replace the term limited Gov. Bob Riley (R).

Former state Senator Bradley Byrne lost that race in the Republican primary runoff to eventual winner State Representative Robert Bentley.  Schriver then took a job in Washington, D.C. working for the Gula Graham Group, a fundraising and consulting firm.

Later Schriver became the national chairman of the College Republican National Committee (CRNC).  The CRNC is the elected governing body which represents more than 250,000 college Republicans on over 1,800 college campuses nationwide.

Schriver moved back to Alabama over the summer to manage Byrne’s campaign for the Alabama House of Representatives.  After Congressman Jo Bonner (R) from Mobile announced his resignation and former state Senator Bradley Byrne announced his candidacy for the special election to fill his seat, Schriver wrote, “I’ve known Bradley for many years & served as Deputy Political Director on his 2010 Gubernatorial campaign. He’s been an incredible friend and mentor to me and so many others. He is absolutely the right man at the right time to become Alabama’s next Congressman.”

Schriver is a former member of the Alabama Republican Party’s Steering Committee.

Schriver has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, the Alabama Political Reporter, the New York Times, Washington Post, POLITICO, ABC News, & Roll Call. Schriver has also appeared on television for Fox News, MSNBC, C-SPAN, NBC News, PBS, & GBTV.

Schriver has previously served on the Board of Directors for Crossroads Generation, a SuperPAC formed by the CRNC, American Crossroads, Republican State Leadership Committee, the Young Republican National Federation, and Reform Alabama.

Schriver has a B.A. in Political Science from Auburn University.
