South Dakota congressman John Thune, has moved over to the House

Republican Conference as deputy communications director.



Given that Thune is up for re-election this year, the move was somewhat

surprising. Still, Iverson felt she could not pass up the opportunity to

work with the national press.



Iverson was quick to note that her position focuses more on

communications than politics. ’We emphasize the message,’ she said. ’If

we do our job well, the politics will take care of itself.’



Among Iverson’s top challenges is to grow and maintain the Republican

majority in the House.



She plans to concentrate her communications efforts in particularly

vulnerable electoral districts - such as the one currently led by

California congressman Jim Rogan, who had a highly visible role during

the Clinton impeachment process. Rogan’s re-election is seen as far from

a sure bet.
