Jindal chief of staff exits state work for campaign job
BATON ROUGE - Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal's chief of staff is shifting from his state job to work on the Republican governor's likely presidential campaign.
Kyle Plotkin resigned as chief of staff Friday. Plotkin said he'll be taking a job for Jindal's presidential campaign exploratory committee, along with Jindal deputy communications director Shannon Dirmann.
They join a growing list of people leaving the governor's office to work on the presidential campaign Jindal is expected to announce next week. Two of Jindal's top aides, including his deputy chief of staff, left in March to move to Iowa.
Jindal's new chief of staff will be Melissa Mann, who most recently worked as director of legislative affairs for the governor.
The governor only has a few months left in office. His term ends in mid-January.
