WASHINGTON, D.C. — Billy Constangy, a Charlotte native who has worked for an array of NC Republicans for over a decade, has joined new U.S. House speaker Mike Johnson’s political team. Punchbowl News first reported the hire on Tuesday.

Previously, Constangy was chief of staff for Rep. Richard Hudson (NC-08) and instrumental in the day-to-day management of the NRCC.

He has worked for figures in the state such as former Gov. Pat McCrory and longtime Charlotte-area Rep. Sue Myrick.
