Former GOP Operative Joins Wynn Resorts

Wynn Resorts announced this week that a former GOP operative is leaving the Republican National Committee to join the company’s executive team.

Chriss Carr is a former national political director for the Republican National Committee and will now oversee government relations, charitable giving and community development as Wynn Resorts’ senior vice president of government and community affairs.

Carr is the co-founder of the nonfrofit Engage Nevada and was given credit for the red wave in Nevada in 2014. Engage Nevada and its super PAC registered about 30,000 new voters ahead of that election.

Carr also served as the victory director and Nevada Republican Party executive director during the 2002 and 2004 election cycles. Steve Wynn was named the RNC finance chair earlier this week.
