Grenell to Serve As Romney's National Security Spokesman

Friday, 20 Apr 2012 09:47 AM

Ric A. Grenell, a leading GOP strategist who served in the George W. Bush administration, has been tapped by presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney to be his spokesman on national security and foreign policy issues.

Grenell’s extensive background in foreign policy and his decade of political experience will add a key piece to Romney’s team, which is relatively young, according to the Washington Post, which first reported the move on Thursday.

Grenell served under Bush for the entire eight years of his two terms. Since leaving the Bush administration, Grenell has been based in Los Angeles as a partner with Capitol Media Partners.

Grenell has advised four U.S. ambassadors to the United Nations: John D. Negroponte, John C. Danforth, John R. Bolton, and Zalmay Khalilzad. Before that, Grenell served as a spokesman for several leading Republicans at the local, state, and national level, including New York Governor George Pataki, San Diego Mayor Susan Golding, as well as Michigan Rep. Dave Camp, currently chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, and then-Rep. Mark Sanford of South Carolina.
