MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker's spokesman Cullen Werwie is leaving the position he's held for more than two years for another one within the administration.
Walker's office announced the staff change on Friday.
Werwie is being replaced Monday by Tom Evenson, who currently works as spokesman for Republican Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald. Evenson previously worked on Walker's campaign and in his press office.
Werwie will serve as state agency communications liaison within the Department of Administration.
In 2010 Werwie worked on the failed lieutenant governor campaign of Brett Davis before moving over to Walker's camp. He's been Walker's spokesman since he took office in 2011.
Werwie also received immunity for his testimony in the now closed investigation into former aides and associates of Walker's during his time as Milwaukee County executive.
