The AP’s Kansas statehouse correspondent John Milburn is trading his press badge for a Brownback pin.
The 13-year AP vet, and former Lawrence Journal-World reporter, will be the governor’s campaign spokesman, the Wichita Eagle reports.
“I look forward to sharing the achievements of the Brownback administration with all Kansans,” the Lawrence resident said.
Mark Dugan, Brownback’s campaign manager, is also happy: “I am pleased to welcome John to the team . His experience and understanding of what matters to Kansans makes him an excellent choice to join the Brownback team.”
