As the new GOP leadership team continues to staff up, House Majority Whip Steve Scalise has announced a slate of new employees for his leadership and personal office.

Moira Bagley Smith, the former communications director for Sen. Rand Paul, has crossed the dome to become the House GOP whip’s new communications director. Smith — who once worked at Roll Call, the Republican National Committee and The Daily Caller — left Paul’s office at the end of 2013.

Scalise also announced the hiring of Dan Sadlosky as policy adviser. Sadlosky returns to Scalise’s office after a stint as a legislative assistant for Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Wash. He was previously a legislative assistant for Scalise as well.

In the same release, Scalise also announced the hiring of Conner Brace as a staff assistant and Kevin O’Keefe as an intern.

“I’m proud to welcome these new members to my Washington staff,” Scalise said in a press release. “All of them bring to the team their unique and varied experiences, dedication to public service, and commitment to representing the values, interests, and people of Southeast Louisiana. They will play an integral role as we work to unite the Republican Conference around conservative solutions that move America forward.”

The new hires come as the August recess draws to a close and the House begins its legislative dash to the November elections. Congress still has to pass a continuing resolution before Oct. 1 to keep the government funded, and the House could be dealing with legislation on war funding and authorization in the next month. Additionally, Scalise will face another leadership election shortly after the midterm elections, though it’s unclear if anyone will challenge him for the No. 3 spot.
