A spokesman for Gov. Chris Christie has left to work for a U.S. Senate campaign in New Hampshire.

Colin Reed worked in Christie’s communications office for about a year. The Record reports Reed left last week to work for the Senate campaign of Scott Brown. The move was first reported by Manchester, N.H., radio station WMUR.

Brown is the former Massachusetts senator who won a special election in 2010 and then lost his seat to Democrat Elizabeth Warren in 2012. He’s running for the Senate from his new home in New Hampshire, and hopes to oust Democrat Jeanne Shaheen this fall.

In a statement issued by Brown’s campaign, Colin Reed said he has known Brown for more than four years and looks forward to a victory in November.

Governor Christie’s senior spokesman, Michael Drewniak, spent time last week being interviewed by a federal grand jury looking into manufactured traffic jams in Fort Lee that led to the firing of an aide to the governor.
