Brock tapped by Dems as interim executive director
JACKSON — The Mississippi Democratic Party has retained Travis Brock as its interim executive director.
Brock, a Kentucky native, is a veteran of state and national campaigns throughout the country. Most recently, he served four years as executive director of the Nevada State Democratic Party. He has also served as national field director of Tom Vilsack for President, political director and coordinated campaign director at the Iowa Democratic Party, regional political director at the Democratic National Committee and on the presidential campaigns of Al Gore and John Kerry. He worked on both of Vilsack’s successful gubernatorial campaigns in Iowa and as a political organizer for public employees in Florida.
“Travis is a seasoned political operative, who brings an unparalleled breadth of experience to the Mississippi Democratic Party,” said state party chairman Jamie Franks. “And most importantly, he understands the principles behind successful state party organizing. The state administrative committee expressed its confidence in him by unanimously voting to bring him on board, and we are extremely fortunate to have someone of his caliber.”
