In an unavoidable signal of a likely presidential campaign being on the horizon for Haley Barbour his political action committee Haleys PAC, has hired a communication director of distinction. Jim Dyke is a resident of the all important primary state of South Carolina and has served as the communication director of the Republican National Committee during the 2004 election cycle. He also serves on the board of Karl The Architect Roves American Crossroads, non-profit political organization dedicated to informing the electorate and electing Republicans who represent individual liberty, limited government, free enterprise and a strong national defense. Dyke is also the president of his own communications firm JDA Frontline
According to Henry Barbour, the treasurer of Haleys PAC; “Haley is delighted to have someone as talented as Jim Dyke joining his team to help us manage the increased national media interest and demand in the governor,” He adds, “Jim’s knowledge and experience will prove invaluable to Haley in the coming few months.”
The move and its timing demonstrates Governor Barbours desire to kick Haleys PAC in to high gear presumably for the purpose of promoting his own eventual presidential candidacy. For Barbour fans, this is good news. For his potential rivals, not so much though.
Barbours candidacy combined with his fund raising prowess, his deep organizational connections within the GOP on the state and national levels, and his relationship with numerous governors whom he helped get elected during his time as Chairman of the Republican Governors Association, will lock up many of the organizational and financial resources that rivals would like to tap in to.
Now, with the hiring of Jim Dyke, Barbour is beginning to suck up some of the talent that his fellow competitors for the Republican presidential nomination will need.
