Mitt Romney Lands Another GOP Hill Insider

Gov. Mitt Romney (R-Mass.) continues to pick up staff talent from Capitol Hill, hiring Joe Wall to serve as assistant political director for his all-but-certain 2008 presidential bid.

Wall was Majority Whip Roy Blunt's (R-Mo.) floor assistant during the recently concluded Congress -- meaning that he was on the House floor during most votes and developed strong relations with lawmakers.

A Nebraska native, Wall did a stint at the National Republican Congressional Committee before joining Blunt's staff. He joins Julie Teer, Commonwealth PAC's political director, at the soon-to-be campaign.

In recent weeks Romney has also hired Republican National Committee research director Matt Rhoades and Majority Leader John Boehner's (R-Ohio) press secretary, Kevin Madden.
