Gibbs To Be Obama’s Press Secretary

Politico’s Mike Allen reports:

    Robert Gibbs, a top aide to Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) on his campaign and in his Senate office, will be named the White House press secretary, a top Democratic official said.

    Gibbs was usually the senior official on Air Obama, the campaign plane. As communications director of Obama’s Senate office, Gibbs was a key strategist in Obama’s rapid move to the national stage.

    Transition planning is still at an early stage and the job has not been formally offered or accepted, officials said.
