DJ Quits Gallagher



One of Tom Gallagher's top consultants strategist David Johnson (the former state party executive director, not the Strategic Vision guy in Atlanta) resigned from the campaign Wednesday. Moments before a campaign news conference with a dozen or so lawmakers supporting Gallagher, the campaign downplayed the significance.


"It's not that a big a deal to us,'' said spokesman Albert Martinez. "DJ had something different in his mind than Tom had in his heart. We're moving on."

UPDATE: Fundraiser David Browning has quit too.The campaign said it appreciated all his hard work.
