Gov. Chris Christie is shuffling some communications staff for the gubernatorial campaign.

Governor's Office, Tim Larsen

Deputy Press Secretary Kevin Roberts will move from the governor's office to the re-election campaign. Roberts is a California native who has worked in the governor's office for more than three years.

Succeeding Roberts will be Colin Reed, who most recently worked for former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown.

Christie, a Republican, will likely face Democratic state Sen. Barbara Buono (bwoh-NO) in November.
