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.
His brother, Dallas Woodhouse, works the other side of the aisle. He was until recently head of the North Carolina chapter of Americans for Prosperity.
