According to a November 9 Broadcasting & Cable article, former NBC News anchor Campbell Brown will “make her debut” on CNN as a “panelist” during the November 15 Democratic presidential debate in Las Vegas, moderated by CNN host Wolf Blitzer. Brown, who was hired by CNN in July, is married to Dan Senor, a former adviser for the now-defunct Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq who is now reportedly serving as an adviser to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Given Brown's role in the upcoming Democratic debate, will CNN disclose her husband's link to Romney's campaign?
According to the December 12, 2006, edition of National Journal's The Hotline:
Dan Senor, reported by CNN to have joined Romney's communications team, won't play an official role in the campaign. He's been informally advising Romney on foreign policy and helped to set up meetings with experts in the field, but he will not be paid by the campaign as a consultant.
The Washington Times reported on August 6:
Advisers to Sen. John McCain of Arizona include Robert Kagan, co-founder of the neoconservative Project for the New American Century (PNAC), while former New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani's policy team includes Norman Podhoretz, a founder of the neoconservative movement, and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney gets advice from Dan Senor, who counseled L. Paul Bremer III, the Coalition Provisional Authority administrator in Iraq.
