FARGO, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Congressman-elect Rick Berg has hired his former campaign manager as his chief of staff when he arrives in Washington next month.

Lonnie Dietz managed Berg's successful campaign against incumbent Earl Pomeroy.

Berg announced a host of other appointments Tuesday afternoon. Former deputy campaign manager Jonathan Casper will be Berg's counsel and legislative aide. Alee Lockman will be the office's communications director and spokeswoman.

Berg says in a statement that he's excited to get to work. He'll become one of two newly elected Congressmen to serve on the influential House Ways and Means committee.
