Jesse Kelly Going to Work For Citizens United

Posted By on Mon, Jul 2, 2012 at 2:30 PM

He might not have wanted to be a politician, but it appears that Republican Jesse Kelly, the Tea Party champion who has now lost two congressional campaigns here in Southern Arizona, is going off to Washington.

We're told by multiple sources that Kelly has landed a job with Citizens United, the political operation that produces right-wing documentaries and, through its Political Victory Fund, supports GOP candidates. (Kelly himself was endorsed and given a cool $10,000 by Citizens United during the recent special election; the group also also aired an ad on his behalf.)

Here's hoping he can do for Republicans nationwide what he did for them here in Southern Arizona.
