New GOP Firm Targets Latinos What’s better than a new hire? A whole new firm. Revolvis Consulting launched this week with offices in D.C., Sacramento and San Diego. The firm will specialize in general consulting and direct mail with an emphasis on targeting Latino voters, a fast-growing demographic and one essential to future Republican success. The firm was founded by Jason Roe and Duane Dichiara, who will be joined by Hector Barajas, Patty Roe and Valerie Dichiara. From the press release:
The two founders, Dichiara and Roe, are campaign veterans who met while working together on California campaigns in the mid-90s. Dichiara, who until recently was a partner at Coronado Communications, was California state director for Romney for President and chief of staff to Senator Mark Wyland and Assemblywoman Shirley Horton . Roe, who has returned to California after eight years in Washington, has been managing partner of Federal Strategy Group, chief of staff to Florida Congressman Tom Feeney, and campaign manager for Illinois Congressman Peter Roskam’s surprise 2006 victory. Joining them are Hector Barajas, known for his many years as communications director at the California Republican Party; Patty Roe, former chief of staff to Congressman Rick Renzi (AZ) and Congresswoman Thelma Drake (VA); and Valerie Dichiara, formerly an account executive at Century Strategies.
