Tennessee: Top Bredesen adviser leaves to work for Frist

ERIK SCHELZIG, Associated Press Writer

NASHVILLE — A top adviser to Democratic Gov. Phil Bredesen is leaving to take a senior position with Republican Bill Frist's education initiative.

Will Pinkston has been hired to run the advocacy arm of Frist's State Collaborative on Reforming Education, or SCORE. Frist, the former U.S. Senate Majority Leader, founded SCORE last year after deciding against running for governor.

Pinkston was a main coordinator of the governor's education agenda that passed overwhelmingly in last month's special legislative session. That effort was supported by SCORE.

Pinkston is a former reporter for The Wall Street Journal and The Tennessean of Nashville. He first joined Bredesen's staff for the 2002 gubernatorial campaign.
