Barack Obama announces a bunch of state directors:

Jackie Norris, Senior Advisor to Obama during the Iowa Caucuses will serve as the Iowa State Director. Mike Dorsey, who served as Obama’s Midwest Political Director in the fall and state director in Missouri, is heading to Montana. Adrian Saenz, the state director for Texas primary and caucuses, will lead the New Mexico campaign. Kat Pustay, an Alaska native who served as state director for the caucuses, has returned to Anchorage. Rob Hill, who directed the Oregon primary, will be staying in Portland.

I don't really know anything about any of those people, but Kat Pustay "who served as state director for the caucuses" seems to have done an excellent job so it's interesting that they're sending her back to her native Alaska rather than to a more traditional swing state.
