PIERRE — The South Dakota Republican Party has hired a new official.
The state GOP announced Tuesday that Justin Rollins is the party’s political director.
“We are extremely excited to have Justin on the team,” said party chairman Tim Rave. “He has an exemplary track record and has demonstrated his willingness to do what it takes to win in 2012.”
Party Executive Director Tony Post said the position had been unfilled.
Rollins, who lives in Pierre and will be based in the capital city, grew up in Black Hawk and attended Sturgis Brown High School. Upon graduation, he competed as a member of the football and track teams at Black Hills State University in Spearfish.
After his freshman year, he transferred to the University of South Dakota where he earned his bachelor of science in psychology, with a minor in contemporary media and journalism.
In the summer of 2010, Rollins was campaign manager for Jason Gant for secretary of state.
Since the election, he has served as state election coordinator in the Secretary of State’s Office, working as the office’s point-of-contact for campaign finance issues, as well as for school and municipality election law.
