Matt Rhoades

Campaign manager for Mitt Romney's presidential campaign. Known for his under-the-radar personal style and unflappability, Rhoades is credited with tagging Sen. John Kerry as a Francophile flip-flopper when he ran the Bush-Cheney campaign's rapid-response operation during the 2004 campaign. "When you see the intense focus and discipline of the Romney campaign," a longtime mentor told the Washington Post "you are seeing in large part Matt Rhoades."
