Campaigns & Elections Magazine has named Annie's List political director Robert Jones a “Rising Star.”
is the only Texan on the exclusive list, which includes 10 Democrats, 10 Republicans and 7 non-partisan operatives.
From the C&E website:
Robert E. Jones, 32, is the political director of Annie’s List in Texas. He has helped nine Democratic women win seats in the Texas legislature.
Annie's List has become a true force in Texas politics and while many have helped the organization get where it is today, the level of success it has achieved likely would have been impossible without Robert.
Congratulations to Robert on the award. We expect to see a lot more from him and Annie's List in the near future.
