Warner Signs Jim Jordan

JIm Jordan, one of the brightest stars in the Democratic strategic firmament, has signed on with Gov. Mark Warner's Forward Together PAC.

He will serve as a part-time senior adviser, and a Warner aide said Jordan will consult on the '06 elections. Jordan is a former executive director of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

Jordan, in a brief interview, said he "deeply admire[s] the governor's life, accomplishments, vision, character, and genuineness. I'm very flattered that he asked me to play a small role in his plans over the next few months."

Will Jordan, who was John Kerry's first campaign manager and later a top consultant to America Coming Together, help Warner in 2008?

"Neither of us has made plans past this November," he said.
