Corker comms director takes gig with governor

Herzog returns to Nashville after more than a decade in D.C.

Sen. Bob Corker's communications director will soon be the new deputy director of communications for Gov. Bill Haslam.

In an email to members of the media Monday, Laura Herzog, who has worked in Corker's office since he was elected in 2006, said she will begin her new job in January.

Prior to working for Corker, Herzog worked for four years in Lamar Alexander's office.

"Working for Senator Alexander and Senator Corker — objectively speaking, two of the great statesmen of our time — on behalf of the fine people of the Volunteer State has been humbling, challenging and inspiring," she wrote.

Herzog's successor in Corker's office has not been named.
