The senator from South Carolina has hired one of The Washington Times’ star reporters — and a frequent cable news guest — as his senior communications adviser. From the announcement:

January 25, 2010 – WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina), chairman of the Senate Steering Committee, announced he has hired Washington Times reporter Amanda Carpenter as senior communications advisor and speechwriter.

“Amanda is an exceptionally talented writer and I’m proud to welcome her to our team,” said Senator DeMint. “She has spent years reporting on the failures of out-of-control government, and she is committed to advancing solutions that increase freedom and opportunity for all Americans.”

“I’ve long admired Senator DeMint for the battles he’s waged to limit the size of government and decrease spending,” said Carpenter. “He is a relentless advocate for conservative principles. I’m thrilled to join his team and help promote those ideas.”

Previously, Ms. Carpenter has worked for, Townhall Magazine and Human Events newspaper. She was also a weekly conservative writer for Glamour Magazine’s 2008 election blog. She graduated from Ball State University (Indiana) in 2005.

As a small business owner, I am familiar with the difficulties that come with running a business. One of those challenges is creating a strong online presence. One that not only represents your ever-changing brand and personality, but also appeals to your target audience. Throughout my web design career, I've built a distinct design style that emphasizes attention to detail. I assume that less is enough when it comes to design. You don't have to have all the bells and whistles only because you can. It's critical to figure out which elements are essential for getting your message through to your customers – and which ones are unnecessary. I'll assist you in sorting through the choices to see what works best for you.
