Romney Calls Up Tennessee Friend

Gov. Bill Haslam’s Economic Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty is supposed to be back to work Nov. 7. If Mitt Romney wins the presidential election on Nov. 6 Nashville observers do not expect Hagerty to return—or if he does, it won’t be for long.

Hagerty has taken a position with the Romney campaign; he is a longtime friend of the GOP nominee and is expected to have a role in a Romney administration. He has taken a leave of absence from his post in state government.

Hagerty was a Romney delegate to the GOP convention and he worked with Romney at Bain Capital. Hagerty also worked with Romney in the primary and later for nominee John McCain in 2008.
