Cornyn campaign dips into tea party for another staffer

Sen. John Cornyn’s campaign has hired another alum of FreedomWorks, which helped U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz take the GOP nod for the office he now holds through efforts such as having a national tea party rally just days before his 2012 runoff election against Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst and training tea-party groups in voter turnout.

Cornyn’s campaign manager is Brendan Steinhauser, who came to him from the Texas Public Policy Foundation after leaving FreedomWorks.

Now his campaign has hired Amanda Shell, a Weatherford native who after leaving FreedomWorks was legislative aide for Sen. Donna Campbell, R-New Braunfels.

The campaign said Shell “is an experienced grassroots organizer who has spent years working to train and mobilize thousands of conservative activists across the country.”
