Laura Herzog is leaving her position as spokeswoman for Tennessee’s U.S. Senator Bob Corker in Washington to become deputy director of communications for Governor Bill Haslam in Nashville.
Herzog worked for U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander for four years before joining Corker's successful campaign for the Senate in 2006.
Starting in mid-January, Herzog will serve as deputy to Communications Director Alexia Poe in the governor's office.
Poe also worked on Corker's 2006 race. Herzog's successor in Corker's office has not yet been named. Haslam is running for a second term next year but has yet to draw an opponent.
