Congressman Bradley Byrne, R-Montrose, said Thursday that Bradley Jaye has joined his staff as communications director.
Jaye is a Monroeville native and graduate of Auburn University.
Jaye’s career includes seven years in the office of U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) in a variety of policy, political and communications roles. In his final role with Sessions as press secretary, Jaye served as media liaison and lead speechwriter and as a key advisor on state and national politics as well as domestic and foreign policy. Jaye most recently served as Communications Director to Congressman Brian Babin (R-Texas).
“As a native of Alabama’s First District and a former staff to Senator Sessions, Bradley is uniquely positioned to serve the people of Southwest Alabama,” Byrne said. “His knowledge of Alabama and love for its people will be indispensable as we fight for Alabama in Washington. My staff is the most talented and hardest working team on Capitol Hill, and Bradley Jaye will fit right in.”
Jaye said: “As a proud son of Alabama, I couldn’t be happier to ‘come home’ to serve Congressman Byrne as he represents Alabama’s First District. Growing up in Monroe County gave me a special appreciation for the people and the values that make our country great, and I’m ready to hit the ground running to bring some Alabama common sense to Washington.”
Prior to joining Sessions’ communications team, Jaye served as Sessions’ energy, environment, transportation, agriculture and forestry policy aide. While a student at Auburn University, Jaye interned for Congressman Jo Bonner (R-Mobile) in his Mobile district office.
Bradley Byrne has announced that this will be his last term representing Alabama’s First Congressional District. Rep. Byrne is running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Senator Doug Jones (D). The Republican primary for U.S. Senate is just eleven months away. State Auditor Jim Zeigler and state Senate President Pro Tempore Del Marsh (Anniston) have both expressed interest in running for Senate in the GOP primary.
