'Nails Rising

GreenMountainPolitics1 has learned that there are plans to name Jill "Nails" Hazelbaker as McCain's new National Communications Director.

'Nails was formally McCain's New Hampshire Communications Director. Her promotion is part of Team McCain's ongoing campaign shake-up.

Marc Ambinder first broke the story of the "official" resignation of McCain's former national communications team.

A source close to Hazelbaker told GreenMountainPolitics1 this morning, "Jill represents continuity for the campaign. She brings to the table an intimate knowledge of what it takes to win in NH, the place where McCain's comeback begins."

Our source continued, "Jill worked closely with the old leadership and has strong relationships with the new team. Her only concern is helping John McCain get elected."

We look forward to sparring with 'Nails at the national level.

If she'll still take our calls.
