For his communications director, Jeb Bush is turning to a Republican operative who specializes in opposition research and runs a conservative outfit that has become a persistent thorn in the side of Hillary Clinton and other Democrats running for office.

America Rising executive director Tim Miller confirmed Friday that he is joining Bush’s new political action committee ahead of a likely White House campaign. The former Florida governor has been staffing up and fundraising as he explores a run.

“Thrilled and honored to work for a great person with the right message,” Miller wrote on Twitter after the news of his hiring broke.

The Wall Street Journal and Politico both reported the news Friday morning.

Prior to forming America Rising with other Republican operatives after the 2012 election, Miller worked for the Republican National Committee, Jon Huntsman’s presidential campaign, John McCain’s presidential campaign and other Republican politicians.
