Top Vilsack adviser to run Hillary Clintonís Iowa campaign

A top adviser to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, a former Iowa governor, is leaving the Obama administration to manage Hillary Rodham Clinton's likely presidential campaign in Iowa, four Democrats familiar with the move said Wednesday.

Matt Paul, an operative with more than two decades of political experience in Iowa, will return to the Hawkeye State to oversee Clinton's campaign for the first-in-the-nation caucuses, said the Democrats, who requested anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the move.

A senior adviser to Vilsack since his 1998 gubernatorial campaign, Paul currently serves as director of communications at the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Paul announced his resignation on Wednesday and plans to depart by the end of March, said a USDA official, who requested anonymity to speak about Paulís plans.

Other experienced Democratic operatives are in serious discussions to join Paul on the likely Clinton Iowa campaign staff.
