Washington (CNN) – Call it one of the most demanding jobs in Washington: Communications Director at the Republican National Committee under often outspoken chairman Michael Steele.
Well, after nearly a year on the job, Doug Heye is moving on. His announcement comes less than two weeks before the RNC’s Winter Meetings, where committee members will elect a chair for the next two years. Steele is running for what is considered to be a difficult re-election against four challengers. Heye has not been closely involved with Steele’s bid for another term.
