02/05/2015 10:02 AM

Attorney General Jack Conway is bringing in Adam Sullivan, a veteran of multiple U.S. Senate and Congressional elections to manage his campaign for governor.

Sullivan has been managing and working on campaigns around the country for the last 15 years, the Conway-Overly campaign said in a press release.

Sullivan managed Sen. Martin Heinrich of New Mexico’s successful election in 2012, and Sen. Mary Landrieu in Louisiana 2014, where he was her campaign manager until the last month of the election when Landrieu replaced him with veterans of her former campaigns.

Conway’s campaign said Sullivan has managed four successful congressional races including now Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and he was the western political director for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in 2010.

In 2007, Sullivan was the statewide field director for the Kentucky gubernatorial campaign of Bruce Lunsford.

“Sannie and I are excited to work with Adam to the lead the campaign organization,” l Conway said in a release. “Adam has the experience to develop one of the best gubernatorial campaigns in the history of the Commonwealth. He has a proven record of success, and we know he will be a tremendous asset to our team.”

Corey Platt, the political director for the Democratic Governors Association, said in the release that they were looking forward “to working with Adam to ensure that Jack Conway is the next Governor of the Commonwealth.”

Sullivan joins the campaign team including Jef Pollack of Global Strategy Group, Doc Sweitzer of the Campaign Group, Joe Hansen of Ambrosino, Muir, and senior advisor Mark Riddle.
