Senate Majority Whip Richard J. Durbin has a new communications director as of Monday, Ben Marter, who is now the head of the Illinois Democrat’s whip press team.

Marter has worked as a communications director for his entire five-year tenure on Capitol Hill, having worked most recently as communications director for Durbin’s fellow Senate Democrat, Christopher S. Murphy of Connecticut.

Marter joined Murphy’s office in 2011 after leading the press shop for former Rep. Betsy Markey, D-Colo., where he had been since 2009.
