A former aide to Gov. Chris Christie is being recruited to work on former Massachusetts governor and two-time Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney’s next White House bid, according to a report by CNN.

Former Christie spokesperson Colin Reed, who most recently served as former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown’s campaign manager, will work for Romney as a media liason on a “volunteer basis,” according to the report. Reed left Christie’s office early last year to work on Brown’s unsuccessful election campaign in New Hampshire, and was formerly the deputy director of Rapid Response for Romney’s 2008 presidential campaign.

Both Christie and Romney are publicly mulling bids for the Republican nomination in 2016.
