Braley aide back after Obama run

An update on Jeff Giertz, an aide to Congressman Bruce Braley (D-Waterloo).  As you may recall, Giertz was given a leave from his job with Braley to work on Obama's presidential campaign.  Giertz was dispatched to Alaska, as reported here earlier. 

Giertz just called the Radio Iowa newsroom to say he was back in D.C. working in Braley's office.  Giertz also shared that once Alaska Governor Sarah Palin was named John McCain's running mate, Giertz was redeployed from Alaska to Reno, Nevada.

"Did you win anything in Reno?" I asked during our telephone conversation.

"Obama won Nevada," was the reply from Giertz.
