NASHVILLE (AP) – Republican operative Chip Saltsman has been hired to run GOP campaigns in the Tennessee House.

House Majority Whip Rep. Cameron Sexton of Crossville said Wednesday that Saltsman was hired because he is "one of the best political minds in the state and in the nation."

Saltsman is a one-time state Republican Party chairman and a recent chief of staff and campaign manager for U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleischmann of Chattanooga. He also ran former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee's presidential campaign in 2008.

House Republicans are looking to protect their 71 seats and add to their ranks in the 99-member chamber.

Saltsman follows Josh Thomas, who held the position in the previous two cycles that saw Republicans make major gains in the House. Thomas left for a similar role in North Carolina.
