Still a year out from the 2014 election, Republicans hoping to challenge Democrat Jerry Brown are getting their teams in place.

The latest: Tea Party favorite and conservative darling Tim Donnelly, the GOP Assemblyman who announced today that GOP strategist Jennifer Kerns has joined his campaign for governor.

Kerns has plenty of experience, working most recently on the successful recall efforts in Colorado, for former Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizer, and a host of other GOP efforts. But most famously, she was the voice of Prop. 8, the voter approved initiative which outlawed same sex marriage (but has since been overturned in the courts).

Here’s a look at her outreach on Twitter, where she holds court as @CAPartyGirl:

We told you last week about the entire team brought on board by former Lt. Gov. Abel Maldonado, who’s relaunched his effort with some major GOP strategists, media and polling experts.

Now take a peek at the official release from the Donnelly campaign:

Kerns is one of the winningest Press Secretaries in the GOP, including winning every newspaper endorsement in the State for a candidate including The San Francisco Chronicle, The Los Angeles Times, and the Spanish-language La Opinion.
