Roe expanding consultancy hegemon


Jeff Roe

empire continues to grow.

This morning we reported on the new chief of staff for KS-03 Rep.

Kevin Yoder

— his old CoS,

Travis Smith

, is now working for Roe’s

Axiom Strategies.

But Roe is also expected to announce soon the hiring of

Courtney Sheehan

of St. Louis, who worked on

Jim Talent’s

2006 Senate campaign.

Roe remains a controversial figure among some politicians and consultants.

But he appears to be — in his current configuration — what Republicans might call a job creator.
