Earlier I reported a rumor that Rudy Giuliani had hired Jeff Semprini, the son of Wayne Semprini, the former NH GOP chair. It turns out that Rudy hired the dad.

Semprini did not seek re-election for health reasons and was considered a bit of a care-taker GOP chair. I was at the March 2006 State Central Committee meeting and there wasn’t a whole lot of enthusiasm for Semprini.

This may be a case where Rudy’s late entrance into the staff wars left him with slim pickings.
