Hillary Clinton Taps Justice Depart. Spokesman As Lead Press Secretary

March 17, 2015 4:44 p.m.

Former Secretary of State HIllary Clinton is bringing in Brian Fallon, a veteran Democratic spokesman, to serve as the lead press secretary for her likely 2016 presidential campaign, according to The Washington Post on Tuesday.

Fallon currently serves as the top spokesman for the Justice Department. He previously was a top spokesman for Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY).

According to the Post, he told staff on Tuesday that he would leave his current job at the end of March. He’s expected to begin with Clinton’s team at the beginning of April, when Clinton is reportedly planning to launch her exploratory committee for running for president.

Fallon’s move toward Clinton’s team follows The New York Times reporting earlier in the week that former Democratic Congressional Committee communications director Jesse Ferguson is also joining Clinton’s communications shop.
