The top spokesperson for House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is heading to a new job on K Street.
Erica Elliott, communications director for the House’s top vote counter, will be leaving the Capitol on Jan. 21, taking a new position in the public policy group at the international law firm Crowell & Moring.
She joined McCarthy’s office in 2010, when he was Chief Deputy GOP Whip, eventually serving as his press secretary and ultimately communications director.
On its website, Crowell & Moring touts a professional roster that includes "numerous former Hill staffers," as well as former staffers for a host of regulatory agencies.
