FOX News’ Jim Mills Joining Thompson Campaign

First Read has the scoop:

    The word spreading all over Capitol Hill today is that longtime Fox senior congressional producer Jim Mills is leaving his booth on the House side to join the Fred Thompson quasi-campaign as spokesman. NBC has confirmed that Mills will join Thompson’s organization effective August 20.

    Lot’s of “OMG” and even “OMFG” being traded on the e-mail this morning among staffers and press because Mills is something close to a legend on the House side. Known for his pugnacious (yet jocular) style, everyone from Speaker Pelosi to the cashiers down in the basement have gotten a kick out of “Millsy” at one time or another, and in one form or another.
