A top aide to Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg is leaving the dome to become chief of staff to state Attorney General Kamala Harris.
Nathan Barankin, who currently serves as Steinberg's communications director, will start the new job next week.
It won't be Barankin's first time working for the state's top cop. Barankin, a former deputy attorney general, served as communications director for two former attorneys general: Gov. Jerry Brown and Bill Lockyer, the current state treasurer.
