(Updated 8:02 p.m.)Fox 61 reporter Shelly Sindland reports on her blog that former Speaker of the House James Amann is close to hiring a press secretary for his gubernatorial campaign. She said he was meeting with the mystery person for lunch today.

While there has been no formal campaign announcement yet, at least one person saw Amann dining with Patrick Scully, former press secretary for the Senate Democrats, over at the State Armory Wednesday afternoon.

Hmmmm…..

Amann called and confirmed he had lunch with Scully today, but was mum about the details. Shelly has more details on her latest blog post.
