Bob Hackworth bumps up campaign team

Democrat Bob Hackworth has elevated a new person to campaign manager, although consultant Darden Rice says she'll still be overseeing the direction of the campaign.

Shari Hazlett, who oversaw his petition organizing for qualifying, is his new campaign manager for his bid for Republican Susan Latvala's seat.

From Hackworth:

"We promoted Shari from petition coordinator to campaign manager after our successful petition gathering effort ended. Fundraising is the next major phase of my campaign and Shari has a lot of fundraising experience working with campaigns and local and national non-profits.  She most recently worked on Karl Nurse’s successful campaign with Darden and before that worked on the U.S. Senate campaign of Patty Murray.

"I’m very happy with her work to date, both with the petition drive and with our somewhat atypical fundraising strategy which seems to be working."
