TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt says he's planning to bring a departing state House member onto his staff to serve as a legislative liaison.

Schmidt announced the appointment of Osage City Republican Willie Prescott on Friday. The attorney general said Prescott will become legislative liaison once his current term in the House expires Jan. 14.

Schmidt also is a Republican and was elected attorney general in 2010.

Prescott is a farmer who served on the Osage County Commission before being elected to the House in 2008.

He was re-elected in 2010 but found himself in a district with two other Republican incumbents this year when federal judges redrew the state's political boundaries. Prescott lost his August primary race.
