Maybe it's a sign of how settled things are in the Minnesota congressional constellation. With less than six months to go before the 2010 midterm elections, the top communications aide to freshman GOP Rep. Erik Paulsen is moving on for a job in the private sector.
Luke Friedrich, best known for his previous work as a spokesman for then U.S. Sen. Norm Coleman's re-election campaign, is starting a new position working in corporate communications at Supervalu, effective Monday.
His successor will be Mark Giga, who currently works in communications and government relations at the Minnesota Office of Enterprise Technology.
