PITTSBURGH, Dec. 22, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- BrabenderCox announced the opening of a new office in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.  The political consulting firm presently has offices in Northern Virginia and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Brian Nutt, a highly respected Pennsylvania political advisor, will soon join the firm as Managing Partner of BrabenderCox's Harrisburg office.  Brian recently served as Campaign Manager for Pennsylvania Governor-elect Tom Corbett's successful gubernatorial campaign.  Brian also is the Chief of Staff for Governor-elect Tom Corbett's transition team, and will continue to serve in this role.

It had recently been announced that Brian would continue as the new administration's "Chief of Staff," after Tom Corbett is officially sworn in as the next Governor.  "After additional consideration, and consultation with the Governor-elect, I have decided not to enter the Corbett administration, but instead pursue my passion for politics, campaigns, and helping to elect candidates," said Nutt.  "I also felt the offer to join one of the nation's premier political and public affairs consulting firms was an opportunity I didn't want to pass up."

In his new role Nutt will continue to be the chief political strategist and a close advisor to the new Pennsylvania Governor.  "I look forward to providing Tom Corbett with strategic counseling and advice in his efforts to restart Pennsylvania's economy, and return fiscal discipline to state government,'' Nutt commented.

"I have had the opportunity to work closely with Brian over the last five years, and I have developed a great deal of respect for his strategic thinking, as well as his ability to win very tough elections.  He will be a great addition to our team, and I believe he will immediately become a vital resource for our Pennsylvania and national clients," said John Brabender, Chief Creative Officer, BrabenderCox.

BrabenderCox was the media firm of record for the Corbett for Governor Campaign, as well as for many other successful 2010 candidates.  BrabenderCox's client roster includes U.S. Senator Tom Coburn, U.S. Senator David Vitter, U.S. Senator Rick Santorum, Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle, U.S. Representative Tim Murphy, U.S. Representative Shelley Moore Capito, U.S. Representative Todd Young, the Republican Governor's Association, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and the NFIB.
