Republican Matt Bevin has hired a national communications director to work on his U.S. Senate campaign.
Bevin, a Louisville businessman who is challenging Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell in next year's Republican primary in Kentucky, said he's excited to have Semmel to help get his message out.
The winner of the GOP primary will likely face Democratic front-runner Alison Lundergan Grimes in next year's general election. Grimes, Kentucky's secretary of state, faces no serious opposition for the Democratic nomination.
