Sarah Isgur Flores will be helping Jeff Sessions through attorney general hearings, acting as spokeswoman during the Alabama Senator’s confirmation process.
First reported by POLITICO, Flores, a Republican strategist who served as deputy campaign manager for Carly Fiorina’s presidential bid, started with the Sessions team in mid-December. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley has scheduled Sessions’ confirmation hearings Jan. 10-11.
“Senator Sessions has dedicated his career to upholding the rule of law and ensuring public safety so I’m proud to be a part of telling his story,” Flores said in a statement to POLITICO.
Flores was critical of Donald Trump during the Republican primaries, particularly after release of the “Access Hollywood” tape, where Trump bragged about inappropriately grabbing women.
Nevertheless, Flores praised Sessions as attorney general pick.
“Sessions poised to be powerful AG w ear of POTUS. Huge win for conservatives who care about judiciary and rule of law,” Flores wrote on Twitter.
Flores, a Harvard Law School grad who served as president of the Harvard Federalist Society, clerked for Judge Edith Jones of the 5th Judicial Circuit, and was working for Ted Cruz in 2010 when he was deciding on a run for Texas attorney general.
