WKU Political Science Graduate hired by Americans for Prosperity

From cn|2 Pure Politics:

The non-profit conservative policy and advocacy group Americans for Prosperity, which is partially funded by the conservative industrialists Charles and David Koch, has hired Republican strategist Julia Bright Crigler as its state director. Crigler will launch an operation that will have two regional offices and a long-term presence in pushing for conservative changes, particularly in fiscal matters, in Frankfort and potentially local communities as well.

Crigler becomes one of Americans for Prosperity’s youngest state directors. She has been one of the up-and-coming Republican operatives in Kentucky since graduating from Western Kentucky University. She served as political director for the Republican House Campaign Caucus in 2012 when the caucus picked up several seats and before that worked on the campaigns for GOP secretary of state candidate Hilda Legg and Republican candidate for governor David Williams.
