Adam Breneman Hired As Campaign Manager For State Senate Hopeful

Republican Mike Regan, a Pennsylvania State Representative who is running for State Senate, announced that former tight end Adam Breneman will serve as his Campaign Manager for the 2016 State Senate campaign. Breneman graduated from Cedar Cliff High School which sits in Cumberland County, one of the regions Regan represents.

“Adam [Breneman] is a community leader and a rising star in Central Pennsylvania politics, specifically in Cumberland and York counties,” Regan said in a release. “His leadership on and off the field at Penn State, and record of dedicated service to worthy causes, speak to Adam’s high character. I am excited that he is joining our team, and I place my full confidence in his abilities to run my campaign.”

An All-American, Breneman finished his Penn State degree in three years with a degree in business management and a 3.25 GPA. After graduating in the fall and announcing he would end his football career due to a chronic knee injury, Breneman apparently wasted no time on the job hunt.

“I am thoroughly excited to be on board with the Regan campaign,” Breneman said. “I have known Mike for years, and I am privileged to join the team that will help elect him as the next State Senator from Pennsylvania’s 31st District. I have followed Mike’s career as a United States Marshal and, more recently, as a conservative State Representative, and I believe he will provide the leadership our communities need.”

Breneman will draw on his experience as a volunteer on a number of campaigns, including the 2010 U.S. Senate and 2012 presidential race as well as his knowledge of the district. Regan’s campaign also notes Breneman’s philanthropic background, including his work as the Vice President of Uplifting Athletes.

This isn’t the representative’s first venture with Penn State football: Regan was the one who proposed a bill to name a Turnpike bridge the Joseph V. Paterno Memorial Bridge in June. Looks like Breneman will fit in just fine around the water cooler.
