The spokesman for Ohio U.S. Senate candidate Lee Fisher (D) has quit the campaign to go to work for Kentucky U.S. Senate candidate Jack Conway (D), the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.Cincinnati Enquirer:
It's just one staffer's decision -- but it reflects what many Democratic insiders feel about the chances of each candidate.
The campaign of Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Lee Fisher, which is on its third campaign manager this year, is now losing another key staffer – press secretary John Collins, who is leaving to go to work for Jack Conway, the Democratic candidate for Senate in Kentucky.
A Fisher campaign source said Monday the parting was “mutual and amicable.” Collins has been on the job for the past eight months, during which time the Fisher campaign has had three campaign managers -Geri Prado, Jay Howser, and, as of last month, Lynne Bowman, the foudner of Equality Ohio.
