Talent signs on to Romney Campaign
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- While former Sen. Jim Talent lost his bid for re-election in November, the Missouri Republican has no intention of staying out of politics.
Talent has agreed to serve as domestic policy advisor to former Gov. Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, the Massachusetts Republican announced Thursday.
"With Jim's experience and extensive knowledge, he will help us look beyond the status quo and answer these challenges with bold, new approaches," Romney said in a statement.
Talent praised Romney's "conservative vision and a successful record of accomplishing that vision."
Talent lost his bid for a second Senate term to Missouri State Auditor Claire McCaskill.
