WaPost: Blunt Brings on Burson

Rep. Roy Blunt is bringing on Burson Snyder to serve as communications director for his 2010 U.S. Senate campaign, reports The Washington Post.

From Chris Cillizza:

"Burson Snyder, who spent several years working for Rep. Roy Blunt's leadership office on Capitol Hill, has signed on to serve as communications director for Blunt's Senate bid in 2010. Snyder spent a brief time working for former Sen. Fred Thompson's (Tenn.) presidential bid in 2008 (who didn't?!). Snyder joins Blunt's campaign on the upswing. Blunt announced Wednesday he had raised more than $1 million in between April 1 and June 30 -- a vast improvement over his weak first fundraising quarter -- and appears to be on the verge of clearing the primary field with former state Treasurer Sarah Steelman leaning against a run."
