WASHINGTON, D.C.—Ginny Wolfe, a top aide to Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, is joining Manning Selvage & Lee as senior vice president for public affairs in its Washington, D.C. office. Wolfe will work closely with Lawrence Haas, director of public affairs in Washington for MS&L and will serve as a senior counsel for clients dealing with legislative and regulatory issues.
In the Office of the Senate Majority Leader, Wolfe worked closely with Frist during the 2002 election campaign when he chaired the National Republican Senatorial Committee and she served as the committee’s communications director. Frist was a principal architect of the strategy that helped Republicans pick up three Senate seats to regain control of the Senate.
Before coming to the NRSC, she ran her own communications firm, “wolfe: communications with a bite,” serving clients including Eli Lilly & Company, the Republican Governors Association, and the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce. Previously, she served in several senior level communications positions including: communications director to then-South Carolina Gov. David Beasley; political director and campaign manager in South Carolina for the elder George Bush’s campaign for president in 1988; and political director for Reagan-Bush ’84 in South Carolina.
