Feb. 3, 2022
Today, the Karrin for Arizona campaign announced three new senior staff members. The campaign has hired Brandon Hiller to serve as the statewide Political Director; Cale Ottens as Press Secretary; and Ben Mills as Operations Manager.
“Our campaign is gaining momentum at just the right time, and I couldn’t be more excited about Brandon, Cale and Ben joining Team Karrin,” said Campaign Manager Jeff Glassburner. “All three have tremendous campaign experience in their respective areas of expertise, and they will each play a critical role in forging a path to victory in August and November. Karrin is truly building a statewide campaign – on-air throughout Arizona and with a team of staff, volunteers and supporters to reach voters in every corner of our state.”
Before joining Karrin for Arizona, Hiller served as Campaign Manager for State Treasurer Kimberly Yee’s bid for governor. Earlier, Hiller was Regional Political Director for Martha McSally’s senatorial campaign in 2020.
Ottens previously managed Lacy Cooper’s campaign for Arizona Attorney General and, before that, served as an Arizona-based Regional Field Director for President Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign. Ottens is also a former reporter who has been published by The Arizona Republic, LA Times and LA Business Journal, among other outlets.
Mills comes to the Karrin for Arizona campaign after serving on the operations team for Glenn Youngkin’s successful gubernatorial campaign in Virginia. Previously, he worked at the White House Management Office during President Trump’s administration.
