ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A senior adviser to Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton says she’s leaving his administration to take an assignment within the White House.

Deputy Chief of Staff Andrea Mokros said Wednesday she will head to Washington to be a high-level aide to First Lady Michelle Obama. Mokros has led Dayton’s communications department during his first six months in office.

Her announcement comes on the day Minnesota’s government shutdown and overtime session ended.
