Andrew Romanoff says veteran Democratic strategist Bill Romjue will manage his campaign for U.S. Senate, the Associated Press reports. Romanoff announced the news in an e-mail, reprinted here courtesy ColoradoPols.com:
I’m writing to share some exciting news. I am putting Bill Romjue, a nationally respected political strategist and decorated veteran, at the top of our talented team. I have enormous respect for Bill’s service to our country and his skill as a campaign manager, and I hope you will have a chance to meet him as well.
Bill earned a Bronze Star in Vietnam, where he served in the U.S. Army. He brings more than 30 years of political experience, having organized more than a dozen statewide races around the country and played key roles in a host of national campaigns, including those of Joe Biden, Gary Hart, Bob Kerrey, and Jimmy Carter. He also served as chief of staff to House Majority Leader Dick Gephardt.
Bill will lead a statewide operation that is growing stronger every day. We’ve hosted 75 house parties and added more than 700 donors in the past two weeks alone.

Bill knows how Washington works – and he’s just as determined as I am to change it. He rejects the “pay to play” system that allows powerful special-interest groups to bankroll Congress and block reform.
He shares the outrage so many of us feel as we watch one senator after another cut deals with the drug lobby, cave in to the insurance industry, and compromise the health of the American people.
It’s time to take a stand.
Bill and I believe that Coloradans – and all Americans – deserve better.
We deserve the best Senate that money can’t buy.
