The Rhode Island Democratic Party has hired Jonathan Boucher, a Warwick native who served as deputy field director for Frank Caprio's gubernatorial campaign, as its news field director.
Boucher, who was also a regional field director for the state party's coordinated campaign in 2010, last worked in New York on a campaign to eliminate budget cuts to education.
"Jonathan is an energetic, dedicated Democrat who will bring his experiences, strong work ethic and commitment toward expanding involvement within the Democratic Party," said party Chairman Ed Pacheco. "I am so pleased to add him to our State Party team."
The Dems will face a state GOP that is attempting to amp up its ground game in 2012. I wrote about that effort at length in a cover story on Rhode Island Republican Party Chairman Ken McKay a few weeks back.
