Dan Conston leaving RPOF

Wunderkind spinner Dan Conston is leaving his communication director post at the Republican Party of Florida to become the communications director for Chief Deputy Whip Peter Roskam of Illinois, for whom he worked in 2009 and 2010.

Unlike his predecessor, Conston, 25, had the luxury of being the spokesman for the party during a right-leaning election when the party dominated at the polls. Conston also didn't have to praise either former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist or former RPOF chair Jim Greer before bashing them. They were essentially already party outcasts when Conston took over.
