Looking to beef up its political and constituency operations, President Obama recently tapped ex-lobbyist and former John Kerry presidential campaign senior advisor Broderick Johnson as a senior advisor to his reelection campaign.

Johnson is well known within K Street and Capitol Hill circles as, first, an attorney in the House of Representatives and then having over a decade of lobbying experience off Hill. He’s served as a government relations attorney at various DC law firms, including Wiley, Rein & Fielding, the Oliver Group, and Bryan Cave LLP; and he’s also held senior roles in the Clinton White House.

“Broderick joins the campaign with the insight of many years of experience in public service and on campaigns, including the 2008 campaign. Broderick will be an invaluable advisor to the campaign as well as our representative at key events around the country,” said campaign manager Jim Messina in a recent statement.

“I accept this opportunity to join the senior staff of the Obama-Biden 2012 campaign with great pride and a strong sense of duty,” said Johnson. ”We must reelect the President in order to build an economy that rewards hard work and restores economic security for the middle class and that provide an opportunity to families working hard to rise above poverty. Our success depends upon ensuring that our economy is built to last, where we out educate and out innovate the world.”
