Bill Hightower, candidate for Congress in Alabama’s open First Congressional District, announced today that Jon Harris will serve as his campaign manager.
Bill Hightower said: “Jon has been a critical part of our campaign from day-one and he has proven that he has the skills, experience, and commitment to lead our campaign as we enter the heat of the Republican primary season. Jon cut his teeth under Senator Shelby and Congressman Aderholt, and his work with the Republican Party of Alabama as their south Alabama field director makes him uniquely qualified to lead our campaign efforts.”
Jon Harris said: “I am proud to join Team Hightower. Bill Hightower has been a strong, trusted conservative voice as a community leader, as one of the most conservative state Senators in Montgomery, and he will be the conservative leader south Alabama can count on in Congress. I have known Bill and his entire family for years and I can attest to his commitment to conservative principles, passion for fighting for coastal Alabama, and strong Christian values. Bill Hightower is the leader the first congressional district can count on and I am excited to be a part of his campaign to bring Alabama values to Washington, DC.”
Jon Harris began his career on the campaign staff of Senator Richard Shelby, R-AL, and congressional staff of Congressman Robert Aderholt, R-AL. Jon would go on to serve as the regional field director for Alabama Republican Party, directing the party’s field operations in south Alabama – with a focus on the First Congressional District. Jon would go on to serve as a field director for the Republican National Committee in Indiana, helping them win one of the nation’s most hotly contest U.S. Senate races.
