May 12 at 7:46 am

A top aide to House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) is departing to serve as spokesman for an association representing thousands of health insurers.

Brendan Buck, who has served as one of Boehner’s top spokespeople for more than three years, will depart today to head up communications for America’s Health Insurance Plans, which represents thousands of health-care providers.

Buck is a towering, lanky presence in the U.S. Capitol perhaps best known to political reporters nationwide as one of the few voices who speaks on behalf of the Speaker and the broader House Republican Conference. He has focused especially on rapid response to comments and policy introduced by President Obama and congressional Democrats.
