America Rising president and cofounder Joe Pounder is joining Marco Rubio’s campaign as a senior adviser.

Founded after the 2012 presidential election, America Rising PAC became one of the leading Republican oppo research firms, serving as an alternative to American Bridge PAC, its Democratic counterpart. Pounder also worked on Rubio’s 2010 Senate campaign.

“As one of its co-founders, America Rising wouldn’t be where it is today without the tireless work of Joe Pounder,” said America Rising chair Matt Rhoades to the National Review. “Joe is the hardest-working operative in politics today, and Senator Rubio is lucky to have him back. America Rising’s neutrality in the Republican primary remains unchanged, and so does our core mission: defeating Secretary of Clinton and Democrats everywhere to maintain our GOP majorities in congress.”
