Washington, DC – Former Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) announced today that campaign veteran Mike Biundo will serve as State Director in New Hampshire for Senator Santorum’s political action committee, America’s Foundation. Biundo has served as a senior advisor, campaign manager and grassroots director to numerous statewide and congressional campaigns, including Congressman Frank Guinta’s 2010 victory over incumbent Carol Shea-Porter.
“As former Senator Santorum continues to consider a run for president, I am pleased to have the opportunity to play a part in that process. The Senator’s fiscally responsible approach to government and vision for America’s future will play well here in New Hampshire,” said Biundo. “I look forward to working with Senator Santorum and America’s Foundation in the months ahead.”
“I am thrilled to have Mike a part of our team. His experience and knowledge will be invaluable in New Hampshire,” said Santorum. “As I continue on this journey, it is important we determine our ability to build grassroots support and Mike will be an integral part of this process.”
In addition to Biundo’s most recent work with Congressman-elect Guinta, he played a senior role in several presidential campaigns including most recently former Governor Tommy Thompson and the winning 1996 campaign of Patrick J. Buchanan in New Hampshire. Biundo was instrumental in Guinta’s 2005 upset for mayor of Manchester and then again when Guinta ran for re-election in 2007.
