Sen. Tim Johnson’s staff has lost another employee to North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp. Earlier in the month it was press secretary Todd Deutsch. Earlier today, scheduler Stacy Austad announced that this was her last day with Johnson. Here’s what she said on her Facebook page:
Today is my last day in Senator Tim Johnson’s office. Although i am really sad to be leaving such a wonderful office, i am excited to begin working for Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s office!!!
When I posted about Deutsch leaving, Johnson’s office cautioned me not to read too much into the departure. So we won’t do that here.
