Republican staffers in, Democratic staffers out

Anita Kumar

As a new administration comes to Richmond, Democratic staffers are moving out and Republicans staffers are moving in.

Gov.-elect Bob McDonnell hired two more people to serve in his press shop: Stacey Johnson will be press secretary and Taylor Thornley will be deputy press secretary.

You may recognize their names because both Johnson and Thorney worked on McDonnell's campaign. Johnson is deputy press secretary for U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor. Thornley is deputy director of communications for the transition.

As was widely expected, Gov. Tim Kaine's communications director Lynda Tran is making plans to move with him to the Democratic National Committee next week after McDonnell is sworn in.

Tran will serve as national press secretary for Organizing for America, a group that pushes President Obama's agenda.

Also moving on: Allison Jaslow, spokeswoman for the Democratic Party of Virginia, who has accepted a job as press secretary for U.S. Rep. Steve Kagen of Wisconsin. No word yet on who will replace her.
