Bevin spokeswoman leaving for Trump campaign

FRANKFORT, KY (AP) - Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin's spokeswoman is leaving to take a position with the Donald Trump campaign.

The Trump campaign announced Monday that Ditto will be the deputy communications director for the Republican nominee for president, making her one of the campaign's three lead on-the-record spokespeople.

Before being named as Bevin's spokeswoman last year, Ditto was communications director for his campaign and transition office. She also worked for former Republican Gov. Ernie Fletcher and the Republican Party of Kentucky.

Ditto will work in New York with Jason Miller, Trump's senior communications adviser. Miller was a consultant for Bevin's 2015 campaign for governor.
