Washington, D.C. – House Majority PAC today announced that Matt Thornton will take over the role of Communications Director from Andy Stone, who is departing for Facebook. Stone has served as House Majority PAC’s Communications Director since 2012.

“Matt has the right combination of experience and savvy to help House Majority PAC hold Republicans accountable and win House seats,” said Executive Director Alixandria Lapp. “Andy has been an invaluable asset to our team. I wish him the best and know that he has laid the groundwork for Matt to step in and excel.”

“From weak candidates to a record of legislative failure, House Republicans have given us ample opportunity to pick up seats,” said Thornton. “I look forward to reminding voters just how ineffective and harmful the Republican majority in the House has been for the country.”

He was most recently the Senior Communications Adviser at American Bridge 21st Century.
