The Levinson Group has added Abbie McDonough, who was director of communications for then-DC attorney general Karl Racine, as senior managing director in its Washington office.

For Racine, McDonough handled communications around litigation and policy platforms.

Earlier, she was VP at Breakwater Strategy doing issues management work and developing PR tactics for businesses, trade groups and nonprofits.

McDonough is a Capitol Hill veteran who was communications director for Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), national press secretary for Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) and communications director for Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D-PA).

Molly Levinson, TLG CEO, said McDonough has “experience shaping the communications strategies for some of the most consequential legal and legislative issues in recent years and will benefit our clients tremendously.”
