Tim Johnson (D-S.D.) and Evan Bayh (D-Ind.) as well as former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.). He served in a number of posts in President Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, including as communications director.Dunn reportedly planned since taking the job at the beginning of the Obama administration to leave by the end of the year.
