ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A federal election regulator is leaving Washington for a post in Minnesota government.

Cynthia Bauerly is resigning her seat on the Federal Election Commission to become a deputy commissioner in the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development.

Bauerly is a Minnesota native, with roots in Benton County and a degree from Concordia College in Moorhead.

Bauerly, who for a time was FEC chairwoman, leaves that post Feb. 1 and begins her new assignment on Feb. 25. The Department of Employment and Economic development oversees trade, business recruitment and other workforce programs for the state.
