Shop Talk: Special Teams for Illinois Special Election

Maryland GOP Chairman Alex Mooney stepped down from his position earlier this month.

The state GOP is in rough shape, but Mooney noted in a letter to the state party’s central committee that he leaves the party in a “strong financial position,” according to a Washington Post report.

Mooney is a potential challenger to Rep. John Delaney, D-Md. He eyed the seat during the 2012 cycle but deferred to his former boss, ex-Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett, R-Md., to run.

Swept A-SWAY

Democratic operative Jennifer Burton has launched a new strategic communications and multimedia production company named SWAY.

Prior to this, Burton served as a partner at Envision Communications. Her 2012 clients included the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, NARAL and several state and federal races.

She is an alumna of Murphy Putnam Media, Doak Carrier O’Donnell & Associates and former Rep. Richard Gephardt’s office.
