REDDING, Conn. -- Happy birthday to Redding’s Dick Morris.
Morris, who has owned a home in Redding, turns 67 on Saturday. The political author and commentator was born Nov. 28, 1948, in New York City.
Morris started his career as a Republican strategist. He later worked with Bill and Hillary Clinton during Bill Clinton's successful 1978 bid for governor of Arkansas and became a political adviser to the White House after Clinton was elected president in 1992.
He helped Clinton to recover from the 1994 midterm elections by advising the President to adopt more moderate policies.
Morris went on to become campaign manager of Clinton's successful 1996 bid for re-election.
Morris has consulted for candidates in other countries, including the campaigns of Fernando de la Rua for president of Argentina (1999), Jorge Batlle for president of Uruguay (1999), Vicente Fox for president of Mexico (2000), and Raphael Trotman for president of Guyana (2006).
Morris has written several books, including "Condi vs. Hillary," "Rewriting History," "Behind the Oval Office," "Fleeced" and "Screwed."
In March 2010, About.com named Morris one of the Top 20 conservatives to follow on Twitter.
Morris was the strategist for Republican Christy Mihos's campaign in the 2010 Massachusetts gubernatorial race and supported Mitt Romney in his 2012 run for president.
He regularly appears on the Fox News, "The O'Reilly Factor" and "Hannity" for political commentary and now writes a weekly column for the New York Post.
