Roy Blunt's office announced Thursday that Burson Snyder will become the Congressman's deputy chief of staff -- not the communications director of his U.S. Senate campaign, as reported earlier by The Washington Post.
"Burson will be a critical part of my efforts to serve Missourians in Washington," Blunt said in a release. "Her experience, know-how, and work ethic will help me drive common sense results for Missouri."
Snyder spent a brief time working for former Sen. Fred Thompson's presidential bid in 2008. Previous to that, she served as Blunt's communications director from 2001 to 2007.
Meanwhile, Blunt spokesman Nick Simpson is moving on to work for the Senate Republican Conference.
