DP's Wessell new Hultgren flak

We learned today that Josh Wessell, the longtime Illinois GOP staffer who ran House Leader Tom Cross's district office over the past year, has been named communications director for Congressman Randy Hultgren, of Winfield.

Wessell replaces Laura Finch, who earlier this year took a post at C-SPAN.
Wessell, 30, says he's excited to transition from state to congressional politics.
A Des Plaines native like Kerry, he tells us his favorite hometown spot to eat is the Mr. Pup hotdog stand on Algonquin and Lee.
