Belmont alumna Dorinda Moss was recently named as a Politico “Person to Watch,” due to her great success as a political fundraiser. Moss oversees national finance operations at Reclaim America, Sen. Marco Rubio’s leadership PAC.
In 2003, Moss moved to Washington to work for George W. Bush’s re-election campaign. She then served as finance director for the National Republic Senatorial Committee’s 2010 and 2012 cycles and helped raise more than $200 million.
In a recent article on Politico.com, Moss’s NRSC co-worker Brian Walsh said, “To be a successful fundraiser, you have to have a unique ability to connect with people and be extraordinarily efficient and organized. That unique combination… Dorinda is able to capture all of that.”
Moss began her career as a junior at Belmont when she worked for Fred Thompson’s Senate re-election campaign in the summer of 1996. On her first day she was placed in the finance department, a vital part of Thompson’s team.
Since then, Moss has continued to build her financial résumé by working with the Bush-Cheney campaign in 2003 and 2004 as well as the Republican National Committee’s Raiser’s Edge and Regents Program. She has worked on the fundraising team for the 55th Presidential Inaugural Committee, Thompson’s 2008 presidential campaign, Newt Gingrich’s American Solutions for Winning the Future and the Tennessee Republican Party.
