A former spokesman on the presidential campaign of Herman Cain has been tapped by the communications shop of Rep. Tom Price, the Georgia congressman’s office announced Monday.

Ellen Carmichael, who amicably split from Cain’s operation in October, will serve as dually as press secretary for Price and the Republican Policy Committee, which the suburban Atlanta GOP’er steers.

“Ellen brings a wealth of experience, as well as the kind of creativity and enthusiasm essential to advancing the work we do at the House Republican Policy Committee,” Rep. Price is quoted in today’s release. “As we expand our communications operation, Ellen will be an important liaison for the media on behalf of our office and a tireless advocate for our policy efforts.”
