SUN WASHINGTON BUREAU
Nevada Democratic Party Executive Director Rebecca Lambe will join Sen. Harry Reid's staff as his Southern Nevada regional director, according to a statement released by Reid's office today.
Lambe's new role will include overseeing day-to-day operations and managing the senator's Las Vegas office, while keeping him up to speed on matters most important to those in Nevada.
She will replace Robert Herbert, who is returning to Washington to work on military, veterans and transportation issues for Reid, the Senate minority leader.
"Rebecca is one of the best political and policy advocates in the country and Nevada is lucky to have her," Reid said in a statement.
Before working in Nevada, Lambe worked as campaign manager for Sen. Jean Carnahan, D-Mo., and also served as Carnahan's state director, managing five district offices. Lambe graduated with bachelor's degrees in journalism and political science and a law degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia.
