Mike Dennehy, a longtime McCain adviser who served as the campaign's first national political director, may return to the position later this month, two Republican sources said.

Under the regional campaign manager structure devised by Rick Davis, the campaign did not have a national political director or a national field director; political and field operations would be run by the states. But a newly-empowered Steve Schmidt will recentralize those tasks and plans to hire a national field director as well.
