John Murray

Communications director for House Republican whip Eric Cantor

“John’s wardrobe is actually two separate countries. By day, he wears pristine tailored suits, beautiful shoes, Thomas Pink shirts, and collectible cuff links. The other half is 100-percent-metal, Seattle-grunge-rock guy with jeans, boots, flannel shirts, and chained wallets. But he always manages to let his personality come through either way.”

—Joanna Murray, John’s wife and an executive assistant at the Pharmaceutical Care Management Association
