Corker spokeswoman leaving to work for Haslam

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE (AP) - Laura Herzog is leaving her position as spokeswoman for U.S. Sen. Bob Corker in Washington to become deputy director of communications for Gov. Bill Haslam in Nashville.

Herzog worked for U.S. Sen. 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.
