Brad Woodhouse, a longtime national political operative who hails from Raleigh, is about to become president of a Democratic super PAC, American Bridge.
American Bridge is an opposition research outfit founded by David Brock, a former journalist who formed Media Matters.
Woodhouse will continue to be president of Americans United for Change, a liberal advocacy group, which he has headed since July.
Woodhouse, 46, has worked with the Democratic National Committee, was a strategist for President Barack Obama, and has worked for many other candidates.
