Brack, Andy (b. circa 1961)

Andrew Clayborne Brack served as campaign spokesman for Fritz Hollings' 1992 campaign for reelection to the U.S. Senate. A journalist and businessman, Brack has held posts at the Charleston Post and Courier and on Capitol Hill as Hollings' Press Secretary. Brack graduated from Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Oral History Transcript (pdf, 41 pages)
In the interview, completed only a few weeks after election night in 1992, Brack talks at length about the Hollings-Hartnett U.S. Senate campaign and his role as spokesman, and his assessment of the Hartnett campaign. In the race, Hollings was opposed by Republican and former Congressman Tommy Hartnett. Hollings' seat had been targeted by the Republican Party as vulnerable and, indeed, the race proved to be one of the closest in Hollings' history. He won reelection with 50.07% of the vote.
