Tea leaves on Grimm staff
Just noticed on the irreplaceable Capitol Hill job list service, Craig Roberts Jobs List that Grimm is seeking two staffers — an assistant and a new press secretary. Here are the listings (but we know that our friends in the media will be happy to hear that Grimm is hiring a new press secretary. His campaign was notorious for keeping the candidate away from reporters, so anything to change that will likely be welcome). The job listing for press secretary describes Grimm as "a very active member of Congress." We'll see.
