U.S. Sen. Rand Paul makes staffing changes in Senate office, announces new Chief of Staff

05/17/2013 01:24 PM

U.S. Sen. Rand Paul announced Friday that he promoted William Henderson to be his new chief of staff, replacing Doug Stafford, who moved to Paul’s political operation.

Henderson had served as Paul’s deputy chief of staff and legislative director since Paul joined the U.S. Senate in January 2011.

Previously, Henderson worked as legislative director for Paul’s predecessor in the Senate, Jim Bunning, for nearly 12 years.

“William is an incredible asset to our team and I am excited that he will be running my Senate office,” Paul said. “His Kentucky roots give him an in-depth knowledge of the issues that are important to the Commonwealth and his extensive legislative and policy experience gives him a comprehensive understanding of the U.S. Senate and the issues facing our nation.”

Scott Wartman of the Cincinnati Enquirer was first to report that Henderson be promoted. Stafford is now heading up Paul’s political action committee
