My colleague James Salzer has gotten word that Gainesville conservative talk radio queen and failed Republican congressional candidate Martha Zoller is now on Gov. Nathan Deal’s political team. At least temporarily.
Zoller has gotten a contract from Gov. Nathan Deal’s political action committee to do “outreach” with tea party activists and county GOP organizations for the governor.
“I’m helping him with grassroots,” Zoller confirmed.
Zoller lost the Republican primary runoff in the 9th District congressional contest to Rep. Doug Collins, who served as Deal’s House floor leader and was the governor’s candidate in the race – although one of the governor’s daughters backed Zoller.
Zoller said she may return to the airwaves early next year. She’s not yet ready to say where.
