Check out Rocky Barker’s blog post here on how the Otter campaign has hired Troy McClain, who gained fame as the runner-up on the first season of Donald Trump’s reality TV show “The Apprentice” in 2004, to handle its communications. McClain, a public speaker and consultant, brought with him former KTVB reporter Ryan Panitz, who Rocky reports works for the McClain Companies; the campaign announced on Monday that Panitz and McClain are its new press contacts. “I love their business sense and their energy,” Debbie Field, Otter’s campaign manager, told Barker. “They add more creativity to our team.”
