Leading the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) as Executive Director is Chris Hansen who has years of experience managing winning campaigns across the country.
Hansen moved from NRSC Chairman Senator Cory Gardner’s Senate office where he served as Chief of Staff. In 2014, Hansen was the architect of Senator Gardner’s winning strategy on his successful 2014 Senate race defeating incumbent Democrat Senator Mark Udall. Hansen first began working for Senator Gardner in 2010 when he managed Gardner’s first congressional race and defeated an incumbent Democrat.
He moved to Washington, D.C. and served as then-Congressman Gardner’s Chief of Staff. In 2012, Hansen took a leave of absence as Chief of Staff to be the campaign manager for Congressman Mike Coffman’s winning reelection campaign, which was one of the most competitive races in the country.
